    Hi, I have heard of people getting negative results because they have been using clobetasol or steroid products which interfere with test results. Don't let your doc bully you. Go back and insist you are referred to a skin specialist. Good luck. X

    Hi Sylvia, it is not uncommon for people to have a biopsy and receive a negative, when in fact it is a positive..the problem with that is that of course you dont want another biopsy, but it certainly does not mean that you dont have LS just that in your case it has not shown up.

    I was watching a presentation on LS the other day and I have repeated exactly what the doctor stated.

    If you PM I will send you the link to the doctors presentation where she states this.
