I am 30 and was diagnosed with LS maybe 8 years ago. When I first got it, I had no idea what was wrong. I kept treating myself for a yeast infection. The doctor finally sent me to GYN and they did a biopsy. they suspected LS but the biopsy came back lichen simplex. I dealt with the issue for maybe a year and then the symptoms went away. Now, for nearly a year I've been dealing with really aggressive symptoms. Month after month I have issues. I use my clobetasol 2x a day most days. It seems my symptoms flare up 2 weeks before my period. This is having a really negative effect on my relationship. I worry a lot about fusing and what's happening to me. I'm so young and want to enjoy a normal sex life and have children one day. I haven't seen the GYN in years but have had normal exams with my regular doctor. At this point, I don't know what to do. How do I keep this under control? Why the remission for 6+ years? I have been under extreme stress over the last 2 years with the passing of a family member.
