Hi! I'm new to this.
I am 36 years old. After years of being treated for thrush, I have been diagnosed with LS. I have seen 2 different gyneas, and 1 GP that specialises in gynea. However after many years of suffering the itchiness and soreness, I went for a fresh opinion on Friday, and was told by another gynea that I've got this skin condition named LS. Until now, I was given Canesten cream, pessaries and oral tablets for the thrush (after many swabs and blood tests). It was driving me insane. The urge to itch constantly. To add to the complication, I had my cervix removed in 2004, I had an episiotomy during the birth to my 1st child in 1998, stiches fell out and episiotomy tore open during the birth to my 2nd child in 2003. So, when my vulva gets itchy it also affects my episiotomy and sometimes around my anal area. I'm now with a new partner and the last thing I want is our sex life to suffer. My gynea has not yet mentioned the option of a vulva biopsy, so not sure whether to ask for one or not just to confirm, although he sounded pretty confident that it was LS. He has prescribed me with Dermovate ointment to use daily for 1 month, every other day for the 2nd month and weekly for the 3rd month. He has also given me Aqueous cream to wash with and to put on the toliet roll for wiping. He then wants me to see a specialist nurse after my 3 months treatment for a follow up. Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
