i have suffered with dry itchy skin for years and was finally diagnosed with LS two years ago. Over the years I have been given different creams to use....Dermovate, Benovate. I have used that many I have forgotten the names. I am now desperate this problem has caused the break up of my marriage. I have not been able to have sexual intercourse for over 3 years+ (it was far too painful). My skin tears and bleeds and going for a pee stings like mad. It takes up to 3 weeks at a times to clear up (vaseline is one of the soothest things to use I find). I have white skaly patches too. I have had this problem so long now that I have vaginal atrophy (the vaginal opening is shrinking). I have been offered a procedure called Fentons to repair the area which keeps tearing (I had this done about 10 years ago and it helped for a while but did not cure it and the procedure was painful). I had an appointment with the Gynae a few months ago and was offered a new cream called Protopic 1%. This cream stings like mad when applied but I perserved with it. After using the cream for a couple of weeks my skin flared up again and split (don't know whether it was the cream or just coincidence). I had an appointment to go and see a Dermatoligist while my skin was in this state, only to have the appointment cancelled. I have an appointment to see a Dermatlogist/Gynae tomorrow and I am desperate for an answer to my problem. I will be asked if I want to have the Fenton procedure again and I really am reluctant (I have been informed that they can't say for sure if it will help....and if the area there is already tightening surely suregery to cut away the scarred skin wiill tighten it more). Has anyone found a cream that helps them or is there anyone had a Fenton's procedure with positive results? Sorry I sound so negative but I am desperate.
