*Graphic Photo* Just discovered this weekend!

Posted , 4 users are following.

So after several months of itchiness I decided(wish I had done it sooner!) to have my husband examine me down there. To my major shock he discovered white/lightness and what looks like a long scar on and around my labia! I instantly had a mini panic attack and it's been eating me up all weekend. After doing tons of research I think I'm almost positive I have LS! I'm pretty upset to find out that this is permanent damage and I'm calling the gyno first thing in the morning for an app.... I wanted to get 2nd opinions from those of you that do indeed have LS. Does this look like it to you?

    To me it looks like an old area of petechia type trauma which has healed but sometimes then thats how L S starts. Please dont worry its not raised and to me doesnt look like something that we all worry about down there the c word. My L S started because of trauma from a road bike bike seat and I had when checked as I was sore exactly the same a long line but on the minora inside area and it was red and black. I saw a gynaeo and L S had set in that area but clob sorted it out. Im post meno so oestrogen and lack of it has played a big part, Try not to wear seam trousers or anything tight for a while until it feels a bit better. Apart from that you look ok not red sore or anything. You have looked where it hurts and are making an appointment so you will get ointment to make it better and not progress. You have dont well x

    To me, unfortunately I believe it does look like LS. The steroid ointment (clobetasol) will help a great deal. The good news is, you have a lot of healthy tissue there and you are aware and getting checked. Try not to worry too much.
