     I have LP on vulva. My regular gyn thought it was a streph infection and treated it with an antibiotic ointment. The itching was horrid. Urinating was painful. I was sent to a specialist that only deals with problems of this kind.  He did biopsies, which is the only way to diagnose LP. I started on.clobetasol and after about six weeks, he changed me to Elidel ( that has been a miracle for me),  I used it twice daily for a few months this, then once daily and now once a week.  This is a chronic condition, which can be controlled, but not cured. Stress is a big factor. LP  is often mistaken for yeast or streph infection.  Have your gyn do a biopsy.that will give you a definitive diagnosis.  If you are in the Washington DC area, I will give you the specialist’ name. I urge you to be persistent with you doctor and get a diagnosis.

      I'm sorry you are going through this, I'm going batty in pain in my mouth and my girly bits. I haventveaten anything but cold milk and a couple notes of tapioca pudding. suggestions on what I can put in my mouth, raw sores everywhere just took 5th and final steroid today, I'm hi get, weak and get dizzy very easily. you said I should stay away from dairy? why is this important? I tried ice cream to numb mouth it just burns like drinking water dies, milk soothes it. I'm still spitting up lots of bloody mucus, has anyone else experienced this? thank you and my best to everyone.

      Lots of people with lp say avoid dairy and gluten sugar and caffeine the list goes on Google foods to avoid if you have olp ! I was eating a large pot of NAT yogurt every day coz thought it was soothing but it was actually making it worse . Merc 200 is a remedy I get from my homeopath along with silica she is helping me much more than traditional doctors I don't take steroids they just make me feel worse and throw up !! X

    Hi

    I have OLP which has greatly improved since the initial diagnosis.

    I read on another discussion that pro biotics might help. By coincidence, I had started taking them at around the time of my diagnosis for another reason. Whether this might have been the cause of the OLP improvement I don't know and I'm obviously reluctant to test the theory by stopping them. But maybe it's something worth trying. As far as I'm aware there's no side effects. Re the OLP, i also use an aloe toothpaste.

    I hope you improve soon
