I just wanted to pass on some information that helped me and hopefully can help someone else. I was diangosed with LS via biospy about this time last year. At first, my dermatologist prescribe me clobetasol (yes, dermatologist. I went to my OBGYN FIVE times!!! all misdianogsed, I was finally over being told I had a yeast infection so I scheduled an appt with a dermatologist and bless his heart, he was able to help me) Anyway, he put me on clobetasol and I didn't notice a different in the itch or the size of the bumps that would come from my scratching. All clobetasol did for me is burn to be honest. After running through 2 tubes of clobetasol (yes, I was desperate for relief) he put me on tacrolimus and i've never experienced any burning. As long as you apply it RIGHT when u get the urge to itch, it calms it down and it actually diminshes the sizes of the raises after 1 or 2 nights. Ask your DR for a sample or see if you can switch if you find clobetasol isn't working for you. And I've read a lot of women struggling with the night time itch, i've brought this up to my dr and he had no problem prescribing me an oral pill that would calm the itch and help me sleep through the night. Ill have to dig through my cabinet to find the name of it. I hope this helps! xo
