Subject: Re: Question for Dr. Williams

Thank you for replying to my post...I had already decided not to give
Sheba the Cheque drops after Tracey Greene had emailed me about
it...but, I needed to know what else to do...
Sheba's vulva just looks red and a little swollen today...would maybe
washing it with warm water do any good?
Thanks for the help,
