Estrace, Estradiol Vaginal Cream
Estrace vaginal cream is an estrogen preparation for topical application to the vaginal area. It contains 0.01% estradiol, an estrogen, and is used to treat certain symptoms of menopause such as dryness, burning, and itching of the vaginal area and urgency or irritation with urination.
