Hello all , just looking for advice . Had this now for 9 weeks (diagnosis) , been on Dermovate twice a day , GP said for a month then reduce , have done a month , then down to once a day . When I try to reduce from that I have real trouble . The best I have got it to is every other day with the lower dosage steroid on the other days . My gynaecologist told me to also put it on the perenium which has now gone completely flat !!!!! Last Thursday I felt a sting when I put it there , went to see GP who said how well it s looked , at that time I was four days into every other day with the Dermovate . By Sunday I had the throbbing paper cut feeling g round the clitoris and burning along the perenium , so am now ( since yesterday) back up to twice a day . I was following a thread on here where a lot of women said they felt pain in that area , this is the first time I have had it , I feel like I almost need to buy a ring to sit on. Have covered myself in sudocreme, I suppose what I am asking is , is this all normal , I had a really great couple of weeks where I thought I had a handle on it and now this ? I have very bad anxiety , and have LP on my back and feet and also oral LP I hasten to add that these appear to be getting better , but in my mind I now have LP in my vagina , my GP tells me that this is extremely rare and there are no signs of it whatsoever !!!!!!! How long does this take to settle down please ? I assume heat affects it to ? I am worried now as I am going on holiday in three weeks xxxxx
