I’m due to see specialist in a month or so but have developed white raised spots in my cleavage- they’re quite itchy and seem to be spreading!

Any ideas? Sure it’s not  vitiligo as they’re not flat!

    Hi Sally ,I have a patch on my leg, a circular patch about 1 inch across and it is made up lots of raised white dots. Can't say that it itches. If I use the Clob for a few days then follow it up with Eumovate every few days I can reduce the appearance of it,but it doesn't go away altogether, I don't find it a problem really, when I used to use fake tan it would take more colour and stand out, now I just don't bother. I had it for years before I treated it. Perhaps if it is LS that you have if you catch it early you such be able to control it. Good luck.

      What I have was really not fully white and was bumped up a bit. It had volume to it and when i se Lichen Planus it’s exactly that. It’s in remission and really small so never bothered to much about it. So maybe by having LS we have more chances to also have Lichen Planus... don’t know...

      According to Dr. Goldstein (authority on LS) over 50% of people who have LS will also have LP, I have it and am grateful nothing else has happened. I have more problems happening with the hormones, so have to find an Endocrinologist again. UGH! How did we get so lucky? NOT!

      Oh .... Linda, I have no clue why we have to deal with all this.... not easy.... some days are ok, some are bad, but yes me to the LP is not giving me to much symptoms. Although my scalp is really itchy lately, hope it’s not that... grrrr.... on top of monitoring the private area, the thyroid, the hot flushes of premenopause, had an hysterectomy one year ago... just gets alot... 😏 I tend to get paranoid with everything. Oh well at least we have support here. Thanks for the info. Good luck for your search of endocrinologist.

      I know right??  Told my friends last night if I am reborn to this earth I do not want to come back as a female!!!!! Maybe a lovely Oak Tree in a forest! I too am what seems to be menopause so I am having the too hot, then chilly and emotional...  I put away alot of the 'treatment stuff' so I didn't have to keep thinking of the LS, smart move. Hope things get better for you...maybe have someone look at your scalp to see if you have any white things going on. Take Care...
