Sometimes they are given lidocaine cream to numb their symptoms, which does not treat the problem, but only mask it.

Unfortunately, with the little literature out there, patients often feel helpless and discouraged. The truth of the matter is, persistent genital arousal disorder is unwanted, unpleasant and disruptive for every single woman that has it.
