Hi ladies, hoping for your advice
I was diagnosed with LS 3 years ago (I'm 32) and although it's never gone away completely I have been managing it with clob and epaderm.
HOWEVER, for the last 9-12 months it's got much worse. The outer skin has turned bright red and I have unbearable itching inside and outside (not just on the areas with LS). It looks like a rash with some red spots and ingrown hairs (yuk!)
I'm wondering if I have ANOTHER infection as well as the LS, something fungal or bacterial (thrush? strep B? staph?). Has anyone else had a bacterial or fungal infection as well as the LS?
If yes, how did you treat it? None of my test results have picked up anything and I've tried thrush treatment (fluconazole) with no success. Any advice about treatments or tests to ask for would be welcome as I have been back and forwards to the Dr and nothing is helping! Thank you!
