I’ve had LS for about 10 years, have some fusing and disappearing parts. Have seen a Gyn annually for the last 8 years, have used Advantin Fatty Ointment sometimes as required, maybe not as much I should have. Recently though had extra appointments as it was all becoming sore and itchier, and got scared when I looked about 2 months ago. So many colours! Strawberry red patches, the pale shiny LS parts, a whitish spot and other pinkish different areas. So, gyn who is also a surgeon ( perhaps they all are) booked me in for 4 biopsies and an excision. Dissolving stitches thank goodness. This was done almost 4 weeks ago under general anaesthetic, and the excision site is still pretty sore. Not infected though, and perhaps I’m expecting too much too quickly.
At follow up visit the dr told me it was all LS, nothing worse, and I’m relieved at that knowledge. However, if this latest change is ‘just LS’ I have to change something. I’ve been following diet change and vitamin intake info on this site with great interest. Already made changes to what I eat and taking vitamins, but i probably need to heal from this before I get the benefit. Hopefully.
I don’t feel too bad so should be thankful but still would appreciate any tips anyone else has on what aids healing.
I’ve been washing with warm running water a few times a day, initially at the same time as peeing to avoid the sting. After 2 weeks I also started coconut oil on the whole vulva area and find it soothing. And that’s it. Anything else that might help more? - wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience? Thank you, from me to you all xx
