In the last six weeks or so I have developed patches under my breasts, my shoulders and the back of the neck. They are classic LS presentation, silvery white patches. I don't imagine that potent steroids are the 'go to' treatment for this, due to the large surface area and thinner skin.
Any input or experience would be appreciated. Cheers

Yes! I have patches inside my cleavage known as cigarette paper patches for the white textured skin. My specialist said to try clob and it worked very well though she thought it might not!
The skin was red and angry around the white patches and now it’s all but gone!
I hope this helps,
I'm due to see my GP in a couple of weeks, so I'll see what she thinks.
Don’t think it can hurt to try a test patch!
I'll probably give it a try. 👍
Or alternatively, you might want to google LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone) which has rave reviews and is probably something other people might want to consider with severe LS.
Sounds interesting, I'll certainly check it out.
Hi Bridgitt, yeah it's an interesting point. That being said the methotrexate is a very strong medication and only to be used for extremely unmanageable cases.
But, the LDN is something entirely different and definitely worth trying for women that are really struggling..there is so much info about LDN on the web and if you have a sympathetic GP he might let you try it.
They do calm down if you keep on top of them.
Think some of us have extra sensitivity .
Hope you feel better soon we all find a way .
This site is wonderful with some wonderful women with advice x
Hi Frances, Have you tried to do the elimination diet? For me I eat that way and when I break it and have gluten I get LS flares which are brought under control again by eating healthy and staying away from gluten, sugar, soy and dairy. Try that for about 3 weeks and see if that does help. So what can one eat? If you can't pick it or you can't chase it, you don't eat it. So fresh veggies, chicken, turkey fish. My FMD told me beef is inflammatory, so I don't eat it and when I do . . . I pay a price. It sucks not being able to eat whatever you desire, but it does work. And I use Emuaid to help with the dryness, etc. Hope you can get this under control and feel better soon. :-)
