    Please never scratch!!! You need to sit in cool water, add either take salt, baking soda or borax. Pat dry. Gently massage the area with a pea size portion of Clobetsol. It may sting, but it will settle down in a few days. I avoid undewear that has polyester or spandex all cotton is best. Always fresh with a little baking soda water after urinating. It works wonders. Scratching creates soreness and more inflammation. Good luck. Take this from a long time sufferer of LS. Hugs.

    Yes I've had the burning and itching. I just use the Clobetasol and itching Med. Pro foam. Sometimes use a cold wash cloth on it trying to make it not itch first
