I was feeling better thinking I had calmed my LS down, and I  was hoping the calm period would last until my app't with the specialist next month. I had been so raw from front to back that I stopped using the Clob and started cream for yeast infection.  I thought it could be one of those two things since I kept getting worse.  I continued using the emul oil.  Anyway it felt much better until today.  Maybe it was a dumb thing to do ,but I did some yoga on the floor with my granddaugther.  When I felt pulling I just readusted myself. Later today, I did garden work.  I hadn'r done any physical activity for 6 or 7 weeks so I really over did it I guess. Tonight, I see raw areas that have come back and there is some itching . Could it be getting hot made it worse, along with the activity?  Will I ever be able to exercise without it hurting ? The exercise doesn't bother that much , but I really like working in the garden.  But it gets very hot here, today it was 88...  last week in the 90's. I know sweat makes LS worse.

    Or maybe it isn't the yoga or garden because I have been sressed the last day..very.  How long does it take for the stress to show up as a flare...day?

    I found if I put Clobetosol on before I go to bed and in the morning after I shower I spray with bi carb or salt water sprays. Put sudacreme (cream you would put on a bab's bottom) on during the day which acts as a barrier and is really soothing. Nothing ever works totally but at least it is giving some relief. Good luck

    Hi Judy! 

    I just started with a new gynecologist who told me she felt that I had been overusing the clobetesol. She said you can get a rebound affect by overusing it and then you get more itchy! The clobetesol is also very strong and can thin the skin as well.

    Perhaps this is happening with you.

      Carley, I think I have been overusing it.  I stopped for 10 days. Now I having started using it again...last night.   I am only going to use on Mon, Wed, Fri.  I just keep reading and experimenting with different suggestions I get from you ladies. Thank you.

    It sounds like you just overtaxed your body.  The yoga, followed by gardening would do the same to me!  I try not to overheat, I live in a hot climate, so it  makes sense that becoming overheated will have a detrimental effect on my crotch, and so I walk my dogs early in the morning, and early evening, when it is cooler,  as it is simply too hot.   I think if you just rest up for a couple of days things should return to normal, and then maybe next time perhaps do either your yoga, or gardening, but not both in one day.

       Since I was feeling almost normal, although I still had redness and some raw areas, it did occur to me that maybe I didn't really have LS.  Instead it was just post-menopausal, yeast infection, and reaction to the clob that I really didn't need.  DENIAL !  Thank you for responding Guppy.

      Thank you Jo.  It does help.  I just ordered a cotton bra. When I learned I had LS and after reading this forum, I ordered cotton panties.  I have been just using the bc spray to clean, but just ordered the E45 bath wash.  I learn so much from this forum.  And I try just about everything that is suggested.  I appreciate all the help.  Everyone here is great !

    Hi Judy

    Yeh, just when you think you have it sussed up it comes again. I have had a lovely few days with not much to talk about and this morning I am burning at the front really bad. Also, I dont know if anyone else has suffered with this but since last Friday ( 4days ago) my face has flared into red blotches and cracks on corners of my mouth and eyes. It is burning like sunburn and the skin feels bumpy and sore. Does anyone think this is part of LS or something totally different.

      glyn, I don't know, but I'm beginning to believe almost everything can cause a flare and can be  related to LS.  I guess that is because LS  is related to our immune system being messed up. I know since I have been diag. with LS I am constantly wondering what has caused it to get worse or I'm  trying different things hoping they will help.  LS really consumes your thoughts, at least mine, from day to day.  I have had itching and breaking out around my stomach to my back.  I've wondered if it is just my immune system acting up or maybe stress.

      It might be Urticeria, not sure, look online for comparisons, but your better off seeing your doctor or dermatologist. I have Urticaria  unfortunately, it runs in my family, and it comes and goes, allergies to food trigger it, as does exercise sometimes (getting overheated)

      Hi Guppy

      Thanks for comment. Went to drop in and that said either allergic reaction or a bite of some sort. Give me a weeks antibiotics but if no improvement in 48 hrs to go to a & e as may need introvenous anti biotics. Got a secondary skin infection from it but as its like extremely dry skin areas made me think it all connected to LS x

      Hi Judy

      It may be linked to stress the doc at drop in said he thought it may be shingles but I've never heard of that breaking out on face. Anyway, practically all clear now but will never know if that  was due to antibiotics or antihistamines cos been taking both but now that its clear I've got a flare up of IS JUST CAN'T WIN
