I have not been diagnosed with LS, have am appointment today. About a month ago i started having very bad vaginal itching more so vulva itching. Night time seems to be the worse. I tried using OTC cream for the itching with no relief. So the other day i decided to take a peak and noticed that the skin is turning white. Could this be LS?

    Sounds like LS. If your doctor is not familiar with this ask to be referred to a dermatologist.

    In the meantime keep it moist with Vaseline or coconut oil.

    This should relieve some of the pain.

    sounds just like my experience. Good news is it sounds like you've caught it before it got out of control. i think some of the worst cases are those who were far along before treatment.

    1. read a bunch of these info strings...especially those about diet and home remedies. THEY ARE EXCELLENT.
    2. are you going to GP, GYN, or DERM? all can be good...just depends on their experience. Dont be afraid to find someone willing to work with you.
    3. MY DERM is open to it when i send her links to research. so many studies are so small, we're all just finding our way...together!
