How do you know?

I am sure I'm allergic but cannot be sure.

My doctor says to use the ointment twice a day now because I'm suffering so badly 'down there'. But it just seems to be making it worse.

I don't know if it is me or is it the ointment.

How can I be sure?

    I am also allergic to Clobestasone.  I do all the other protocol e.g. eat primarily organic foods, regular fresh lemon juice etc to keep my system more alkaline including healthy bowel movement, keep the vagina moist with olive oil or other organic lubricant.  No soap to touch that area.  Read all the other posts and care for yourself accordingly.   After a period of time, the condition settles down and life goes on.  I have stopped using Clob for about a year. Every few months, take photos to monitor the condition so that you have a progress report to see for yourself and/or to show to the specialist as needed.  

    Good luck.

    I have heard that some people get worse by using the ointment it's usually because your not using it right that was my case anyway it got better after watching Dr Goldstein video. I would watch that to make sure you are doing it right if that still doesn't work I would talk to your doctor there are other things to use there just not as good

    It's quite possible you're using too much, or letting it ooze onto healthy skin by applying whatever oily balm or cream too soon afterward (wait half an hour or so).

    If we have a mild or slow case of LS as I've had for forty years it's possible to get by without the medication – I was only diagnosed and treated 18 months ago. It's hugely helped me, but it takes months and months – maybe two years to really do it's work and then we keep using a tenny bit twice a week as maintenance.

    Some of us have extremely aggressive LS that scars and disfigures quickly. Those patients are given Tacrolimus if they're allergic to clobetasol.

      Thankyou for this info. I will ask my GP to prescribe me Tacrolimus and see if that helps X
