    if i were you i would be going back to my gp and asking what this is. if they dont know then youask for a gynae referal.

    if they refuse to refer you or if they don't know get yourself an appointment with the GUM clinic. .someone in this lot will have an answer to help you. good luck!please let us know how it goes for you !

      any doctor / clinic worth their salt wouldn't excise this without first finding out what it actually is.

      from the picture at various angles it looks like a collection of eggs. from another angle it looks like a large patch of LS. i cant tell if it is a large collection of bumpy things or flat. sorry i cant be of any more help.

      sorry, i must have left the forum without posting the answer to your question about what LS is !

      no, warts , even genital warts are lumpy and textured . these lumps are smooth.

      LS is a genital skin condition found in both males and females. most people have flare ups where it is bad and then dies down. it is often linked with auto immune illnesses like arthritis , diabetes etc. the symptoms that usually send you to a doctor tends to start with an itch so strong that you have scratched yourself to bleeding. you think you have thrush but the itch is 100 x worse than you would have with thrush. the skin in the vaginal area gets very friable and continuously rips. The skin has white patches . This is a progressive illness which somehow erodes and dissolves the inner structure of the vagina. eg in my case the forchette ,( the inner almost wavy bit inside the vagina) has gone. my clitoris as almost disappeared. now i am a trained nurse and i never knew this was possible. the creams you get for this is to slow down and hopefully halt the destruction of the vagina my case is a bit extreme where i have no flare ups , my condition is constant. i think in the 10 yrs i have had this i have had maybe 7 days where i have had no itch and those days are not together as in a week free! I have a gynaecologist who specialises in gynae skin conditions. Apparently LS can lead to cancer of the vulva. I have gathered from all the reading i have done in these forums that this is extremely rare and I have for once landed lucky with my doctor ! he is an absolute gem. i hope that this has been of help to you.
