I had LS almost 40 years ago. it went away on it's own. Now at age 59 it has come back with a vengence. i would like to go to water aerobic classes and will try a barrier ointment. It has been a very stressful year for me, and i truly believe that it has exacerbated the condition. i pick up my doctor prescribed rx tonight. i hope it improves. i appreciate the suggestions on this forum. i don't feel so alone.

Went away on its own!! Wow, don't we all wish for that? If only a doctor could figure out HOW that happened. Sorry to hear it has reared its ugly head after so much time, but you are certainly not alone.
I swam in the pool last winter and it caused no problem for me, though other women said it burns. I think using a bit of vaseline works fine. I also found the ocean soothing, but some say it burned terribly. It's an individual thing. In general I don't have much discomfort. I'm grateful for that, at least and hoping it stays that way.
I am looking into having the platelet rich plasma injection (PRP). We have been discussing it on this site.
I'm a relative new-comer, but this would be my set of advice:
That's my list...I'm eager to read others...
Great post, Snappy!
You are most definitely not alone. My latest (#6) gyn doc said LS is on the rise. I am interested to know what stressors you experienced that may ave brought back your LS. Also, what, exact symptoms do you have? PM me if you prefer. In the last 3 years I lost my best friend and both parents, my house, almost my job, and had numerous reversals of one kind or another, all of which tested my faith deeply.
I am a few years older than you are but have had, until now, a completely uneventful menopause. Nary a hot flash or irritable moment (I am just naturally irritable, LOL) For my age, I am in very good shape and eat well. I know for a fact that stress kills and brings on auto-immune problems.... I am trying to use what scientific knowledge I have to help myself and the rest of us here who are suffering. I'm not giving up and don't you either. biscuit
