Hello all. About 8 years ago, I was finally correctly diagnosed with LS after the tissue was actually tested and was prescribed Clobetasol and Estrace. SInce I had breast cancer 16 years ago, the Dr was hesitant to give me Estrace at first. I must admit that I don't regularly use these meds as something just seems to aggravate the skin more when I do. I don't have a partner now and haven't for awhile but would like to preserve things to be working when I do someday find him! I have been hesitant to use the Clobetasol since it seems to thin the skin and that is most of what the problem already is. When I did use the Clobetasol regularly in the past, I did not see the labia become any less fused over and it felt like I simply was aggravating the skin making it more sensitive and burning.
Now I am having a flare-up for no apparent reason other than biking perhaps, although I wear the best padded shorts. I'd like to treat it and I just saw Emuaid online and wonder if anyone has had good success with it. Also, do any of you think that I should use the Clobetasol regularly regardless of the fact that it seems to exasperate the problem? I don't want to bring on skin cancer but I don't think Drs. in the US really know what to do for me since I had the first one seeing the problem regularly for at least a decade and never having a clue as to the real disease. My new gyno seems to know the most about this now but I am not sure that is much at all or at least not new information. He says that the Clobetasol will thin the skin first then make it better and strengthen it. Has anyone been told that?
