Hi, I was diagnosed with LS nearly 3 years ago when I was 16 years old.
I have struggled being a teenager with the condition as it has impacted a lot of things in my life.
I didn't have a good diagnosis at first as three different GPs diagnosed me as having a yeast infection. I had severe tearing and bleeding during sex and noticed nothing was healing. I asked to see a gyno and was diagnosed straight away. Within a year my lady parts had recovered by up to 80%! My immune system isn't very good and I find when i get irritations and sores it's normally when I am feeling run down or ill. I am often ill with temperatures, flared up glands and colds. I haven't been diagnosed with anything else but I have a history of auto immune diseases in both sides of my family which is worrying me. Throughout my childhood I have stuggled with skin issues : plain warts on my forehead, hard inflamed lumps on the back of my knees, I've had chicken pox twice and shingles on my scalp and severe reactions to strong sun/UV lights.
I have never spoken to anyone with LS too and have many questions!
I have been given three creams to use when I have flare ups (dermovate, betnovate & trimovate)
and just wanted to know what ones have worked best for other people?
Has anyone seen an improvement after changing their diet?
Any other creams or treatments that have worked well with anyone?
Has anyone struggled with other skin problems?
