    Hi there using coconut oil improved my levels of comfort so much, I take it everywhere I go now.

    The other user who said virgin organic is right, and raw too.

    I buy it from a reputable supplier and decant it into smaller pots to use with a spatula to avoid contamination.

    I hope you improve soon.

    Hi, I too am a fighting LS. I was diagnosed by biopsy about six years ago. Like you I am post menopausal, I have tried almost every non prescription remedy I heard about. There are a few things that have been consistent in my case.

    1. once you lose your Clitoris, Labia etc. it does not regrow.
    2. This disease will continue to cause atrophy unless you are able to get it into remission.
    3. . The coconut oil will help with your labia sticking together but not the labia atrophy.
    4. You will need a steroid to force it into remission. Even when you don't feel itchy, or tearing it is still there and doing damage.
    5. My GP was not a fan of steroid creams so for many years I suffered with almost a constant out break of raw burning skin.
    6. In September of 2019 I asked for a mid strength prescription to try and get some relief. I got a cream and started using it twice daily , to my amazement my condition started to get better, the open area healed. The itching and soreness got better.

      I am not cured because I still get the itching but i quickly apply some cream. The itching goes away. After watching the video recommended to you I will begin using the cream every other day for three months.

      This is the name of the medication that I am using.[Triamcinolone Acetonide ]

      I hope you will find this helpful.
