I don't have lichen sclerosis, but vulval lichen planus and have found this forum to be so helpful when I was struggling to find a diagnosis.
I saw the dermatologist a month ago and was discharged from the hospital. The inflammation has all gone, I was to stop using the Dermovate and was told to examine myself every two weeks. If necessary, I was to use the Dermovate again and also use an emollient every day. The dermatologist did say it may well come back once I stop using the Dermovate.
So, now, four weeks later I'm beginning to feel a little uncomfortable and itchy again. I'm quite happy to use the Dermovate again, if necessary, but wonder what sort of regime others are on as a maintenance. Prior to being discharged, I was using the Dermovate twice a week. I don't want to use too much, but, at the same time, don't want to get in the situation I was before I asked to see the dermatologist. I'd appreciate any advice.
