I've been prescribed with eumovate cream to ease the itching . the itching had subsided but the white patches are becoming worse and getting bigger as they are causing more itchiness even with the cream.. does anyone know any treatment that helps the patches go away or any surgery that is successful? they are so ugly and itchy

i use an ointment as i found the creams clogged and didnt help as much, many on the site use a fatty moisturising cream to keep the area soft and lubricated. Surgery is normally used when the fused skin restricts normal function.
often scar tissue following and operation is a worse option than the original complaint -but it does depend where you have the affected area
Best of luck
The emollient which has worked magic for me is cetra ben, which is prescribed by my GP along with the betnovate, and which I just use in the morning after I have washed and has helped to keep me itch-free for a couple of years now, just using the betnovate once or twice a week. I only wash with water, nothing else.
We're all different and different products work for each of us - keep telling your clinic or GP of your problems and they should prescribe you something different.
This is a subject that most will not like to talk about. I am going to talk as open as I can as this might help others. Yes I had the same pain, later I noticed a different deep pain in my clitoris which lasted for about 2 weeks. I went for an exam and during the exam my dermatologist told me that my clitoris was absent. I was so shocked. Well I obviously examined myself later that day and sure enough things have changed and the clitoris is not visible but I think that the skin has fused over the clitoris as I can still feel something there. I must check more often. That change took place in one month. I have managed to treat it myself as I had increased my use of the clobetasol to daily when the pain started and weaned off it again as it calmed down. I had no active LS at my exam, so I must have caught things and stopped things getting much worse.
I know this is really hard for some to talk about so I hope that by being so honest it will help others and prompt them to examine themselves more often and not frighten you all too much. It sounds a lot worse that it feels. Remember if things change down there or you get severe pain get a second opinion to ensure that nothing serious is going on. Good luck with your exam.
Lara don't ask for stronger steroid ask for a different ointment if this isn't working. Ointment works better than cream. Different ointments work better for different sufferers. You should first try what he has given you and give it time to work. Regular treatment with steroid and lots of Epaderm, or whatever moisturiser that you get for the LS every time you pee. I usually find it takes up to 2 weeks to find an improvement when bad but normally it gets better in a few days. It is really made worse by urine being in contact so keep as clean as possible and change pads (if u use them) regularly or as soon as there is any urine on them. Carry sensitive skin baby wipes for cleaning when out. Or you could try a small squirty bottle with water to spray over the area to rinse off the urine. Dry by patting not wiping.
Try not to worry too much. You will get used to all of this. At least we can talk to each other on this site.
But my gyneo lady said try double Base Gel for washing and wiping which I have been using for a little time now
This is moisturising protective hydrating gel
It can be used for skin conditions that itch or are inflamed
I receive mine on prescription
But I do know Amazon sell this also
It is also available via chemists (UK)
It can be used on babies adults oldies like me
It can also be used on the body as a moisture cream
But I find to wipe vagina with this to clean and after each urination keeps all in check
I also use this as a face cleanser and moisturiser Hope this is of some help
