Hi guys don't know if anyone can offer any advice on this.  I saw the gynaecologist yesterday, who looked and confirmed diagnosis, she said it is really not too bad at all with minimal fusing.  She has taken me off the steroid cream twice a day and told me just to massage it in in the evenings. she prescribed Hydramol cream to be put on in the day.  I have just been to get it and put it on, oh my god the awful burning and pain I have had to wash it off and put on Vaseline and sudocream which is beginning to calm it down, has anyone else had this?  I am only a week in.  I also tried Olive oil last week and had a similar reaction, can anyone advise anything that is for super sensitive skin. I am scared to try anything else now.  Many thanks xx

    I use Coconut oil and haven't had any problems. I did use it when I was sore too. Unfortunately it is going to be trial and error. Baking soda in cold water is quite soothing. Good luck.

    Bummer Jane, I too am trying to find what works. My GYN has had me put the Clob on externally though so that probably is a big difference. Not sure it is working very well...lately I have been working with a compound pharmacy and they are going to help make up a salve like cream for me to try...  Still waiting on the Hydromol to see how that may work. I cannot tell what is making this irritated, diet, creams, Clob etc.... God is trying to teach me patience...

    Coconut oil or Emuaid? Also try swabbing with weak borax solution, I find that is soothing. Good luck.

    HI Jane 

    Try cutting sugar, dairy and gluten from your diet. Also any other foods that you have a reaction to. See if that helps x

      Hi Jane

      Its funny you said that cos I didn't eat meat for 3 years but have reintroduced it recently.  Thought maybe I was deficient in something and thats what triggered the LS again. Who bloody knows why, its a mystery for most of us I guess xx

    You can get Emu oil online that's very good, and then there is castor oil which is great.  I actually think its just trial and error.  It is better to have a couple of different creams/oils rather than just one that you use all the time,

      I am sensitive to coconut oil, it really is a case of trial and error and finding out what works for you. There's a cream called 'Madelaine's cream,' which was developed by a homeopath for people with persistent skin sensitivities. If you google it you will get the page. It's in the UK but I'm sure they'd post it anywhere. It's got borax in too. Emu Oil won't be vegetarian, but if you're thinking of eating meat then that shouldn't bother you too much. I've had good results with avocado oil. Some people find apple cider vinegar soothing, others a weak solution of baking soda or borax in water. One is acid, the other alkaline. There really is no consistency in what works, you just have to find what works for you. There are so many suggestions in this forum, there will be something for you that helps.

      Good luck
