I was diagnosed with LS last April. I am 48 and also have hypothyroid and Alopecia Areata Totalis and was told it was linked to having those auto immune conditions. Once I started clobetasol ointment and oestrogen pessaries my symptoms became well controlled. However since last December I have had hardly a day symptom free, usually mild itching in the morning or if I forgot to moisturise. However some fare ups have been particularly bad and I am experiencing one at the moment, constant needle type itching, sore red skin. I have tried diprobase ointment, cetroban ointment, emu aid, I only use aqueous cream or e45 wash (never soap) to wash with.
i have read some posts recommending Hydromel. What is that and do you need a prescription?
I have just listened to the webinar by Dr Goldstein and wondered whether I haven't rubbed in the steroid cream for long enough. I had been applying it twice a day as it got so bad but stopped the past few days as I worried that the flare up was caused by overuse.
Any body have any suggestions? The discomfort is hard to live with.
