I was diagnosed with LS on friday. I didn't agree with the diagnosis since i had no white patches, but alas i saw someone else for a second opinion and apparently yes - it is LS.
At the moment i am using dermol 500 as an emollient several times a day and i have been prescribed two different strength steroids. I'm not sure which is best to use to be honest. All i know is nothing is giving me much relief i am sore, burning and itchy all at the same time. I cant go to the gym as i cant bear the thought of lycra, and my husband is moaning that he's not had sex in a month (like i care!).
I am only 31 and to be honest, scared of the future progression. i read a lot about it and understand the increased risk of vulva cancer (I've already had an abnormal cervical smear and low grade changes, I'm positive for HPV (and strep B, although not pregnant and not planning any more babies so thats not important).
i just wondered if anyone is my age and how theyve found progression. i'm worried i'm not ever going to get it under control so i'm not constantly aware of my bits!
thank you for reading and apologies for the lack of capitals and imperfect grammar. i've written this on my phone and autocorrect isnt working and i'm too lazy to go back and fix it!
