I'm fairly desperate. I've seen 2 specialists (twice) and countless GPs and nobody has managed to diagnose my vulva problem. It started 18 months ago with little lesions on the inner labia, and now it's just one sore patch that will not heal and itches constantly. It's like the skin is missing from a patch half the size of my little fingernail. I am using very thick barrier cream at the Dr's suggestion but it's not going away. I can't have sex, it hurts too much. I've tried Dermovate cream, Canesten, Oestrogen cream (I'm 47 so they thought perimenopause may be the issue), I've had a biopsy, tested for every STI, tested for lichen sclerosis and lichen planus and it's not cancer nor any of the others. It just will not heal, no matter what I do. Have worn cotton pants, have scent-free baths, use prescribed shower gel, etc. I am at the end of my tether and seemingly, the Drs have run out of ideas. Please, does anyone have any idea what could be causing it? I have a mostly vegan diet and stopped drinking (I drank moderately) 4 months ago. Any suggestions very welcome indeed.
