How frustrating is this horrid disease. Have suffered over 15yrs now and am in my 60's. How so many of us suffer in silence as we rarely speak about it to anyone, no-one not experiencing it would understand. It took some years to diagnose, 3 gynocologists couldn't figure it out. Finally my GP sent me to a Dermotologist who indentified it immediately. The usual steroids were prescribed but I too felt unsure about the long term effects of them. I stumbled across Perrins Complete and Perrins Blend while searching on the internet. I felt excited and ordered some immediately. That was at least 2 years ago now. It has been extremely efficient. My dermotologist was bouncing off the walls with delight. I have continued to use it faithfully since. However, in the past month or two I am experiencing the worst outbreak of this wretched disease and have moved my appt with my Dermotologist from November to July. I am starting to wonder if diet plays a part and perhaps stress/anxiety which I have had a lot of in the past few months. I am continuing with the Perrins Blend at night and Perrins Complete during the day. With the Blend it does stain so get yourself some old nickers and pj bottoms for when you are using it at night. As the Blend is extremely thick get an empty container and place some Blend into this and add just a tad of the complete. This makes it easier to apply. I have still used the steroid cream once or twice a week. I also use no soaps or talcs and wear cotton nickers. Just feeling a tad flattened right now with this condition flaring up as it has to the worst it has ever been, Has anyone tried anything else with any reasonable success? Will be interesting what the Dermotologist says. Will keep you posted. Hang in there girls. If we all communicate and discuss our experiences we might stumble across a cure.
