Feeling very down right now. I feel like I'll be in pain for the rest of my life regardless of creams and medications. My next appointment is in may. My symptoms have not improved so I'm afraid the Dr will send me for a biopsy. What should I expect? What comes of that? Are there any surgeries that fix LS? Anyone gone through this?

    Dear Ashley, there is hope and relief, please read the thread " an experiment with Borax" on this site. Please read it from the beginning, you will be very encouraged by all the testimonials of relief and hope

    I am one of those who followed the instructions and it has been six months I am symptom free. No more horrible itching, biting, stinging or burning. I do have the steroid Clobetasol on hand but have not had to use it since I started the Borax.

    You might also look up on the web " medical uses for Borax" ... God bless and guide you dear one

    hi ashley i know you replied to me on my post when i was feeling so depressed and looking for advice. We are in a similar situation i feel. I just updated my post however with some positive news which i didnt think was possible! I used the borax people advised and its worked liek a charm and ive stopped using my steroid cream as it can have negitive side effects. Im not sore except for mild pain when i first apply the borax which is a first for me. im going for more surgery in may also to get scarring removed from my last surgery and my next step after that is dilation which apparently helps alot. Unfortunately it seems i had a huge flare up right after my initial surgery which made it pointless but my Dr has reassured me she will work with me to sort me out 

    Just to note i had massive doubts about the boarx but after 1 week of using it ive noticed great relief and i think the pain i get from it is actually my fusing comming aprat which is a huge deal for me

    Ashley I felt like everything wasnt helping and it isnt a nice place to be. I tried this and fingers crossed it did help. When you go to pass water straddle your legs on either side of the toilet dunt sit down just urinate straight into the toilet. Use one of the cotton makeup pads saturate it under the warm water tap. Gently wipe away the urine on each side of the Labia then pat with another dry. After about 4 or 5 day you should start a healing process as the position of sitting whilst urinating dose over time irritate the skin.Moisturize with coconut oil and use your Dermavate when necessary. Hope this helps its helping me oh and Jaffa oranges eaten every day do alter urine Vitamin c makes the urine less acid believe it or not  Good luck xxx
