I’ve been experiencing constant vulva itching for months (contact dermatitis: latex condoms and cleaning product residue in the bath tub [June & July] ) I’ve been on a strong steroid (clobetasol) on and off since July to provide relief, but as soon as I feel a little better and stop using it, 2-3 days later the severe itching just comes right back.
No pics because there is no visible rash, bumps or anything out of the ordinary to see. I’ve been to 3 OBGYNs and 1 dermatologist already. I’ve been tested for yeast and bacteria infections, UTI, STDs all are negative but I constantly itch. They all say I “look normal” and don’t know why I’m still itching.
My primary OBGYN recommends I use clobetasol for 6-8 weeks then reduce to 3 days a week indefinitely! I’ve expressed concerns of this long term use to multiple docs and they act like it’s not a big deal. Upset that she isn’t digging any deeper.
Can contact dermatitis last this long? I really need help figuring out what this is so I can tackle the root cause. I don’t want to just mask it with Clobeasol indefinitely. I really need some direction. Anyone have any thoughts?
