My name is Meghan and I am 22 years old. At the beginning of 2018 I was diagnosed with type 1 genital herpes. I've been with the same boyfriend for 2 1/2 years and did not contract herpes from him so the virus was dormant for a while in my system. I had my first outbreak 2 months after I was diagnosed with Lichen Sclerosus. When I was first disgnosed I began using the topical steroid but my pain worsened and my gyno wouldnt give me any answers so i stopped using it. My fusing hasn't progressed drastically but I would obviously like to use the steroid cream but am so afraid of having another outbreak because of it. I'm not even sure if thats what caused it but my gyno mentioned the cortiosteroid is an immunosuppressant so it would make sense. I just switched gynos so hopefully he can make some sense of this for me but my worry's got the best of me and I'm Just wondering if anyone on here is living with both conditions? I feel so hopeless and scared 😦
