Newly diagnosed with Lichens Sclerosis

Posted , 4 users are following.

I was recently diagnosed and it was pretty bad.  I thought that I had a yeast infection but it turned out to be this.  Prescribed a strong steroid cream and been using for a week now.  So far, it only makes my vulva inflamed and still have itching and pain with urination. 

I dont like the idea of having to take steroids long term and I am looking for a more natural treatment !  Help !

    Emuaid MAXX on Amazon and then Emuaid regular formula. It took 10 days for all my lesions to heal, all pain and itch to go away. Changed my diet ( no sugar, little carbs,  no soy, low oxalate), balanced out my supplements and  lowered my stress. 

    I now moisturize with coconut oil or Medline soothe and cool Aloe with Vit A, D, E. 

    Only have a tingle if I eat sugar or too much bread. I hv to give up Gluten next! 

    Good luck to you!

      Forever is a long time! 🙄 I hv a lot of reactions / allergies to things, so if I can treat it naturally with diet, supplements and creams like Emuaid, that’s my path. I did fill the clob script and  I hv it if I need it, but teying to hold off! I also bought the 100% Food- quality Borax on Amazon and may tey the Borax and water paste on the cotton ball to see if it helps clitoris hooding. It still responds to stimulation, but not as sensitive as it was....

    I use terrarium that I got on Amazon but having to go to the bathroom is terrible burns like crazy so I always make me some Epson salt water to sit in to ease the pain. Hope this will help youbitsvthe most terrible stuff I ever had and started after I went through menopause.

    I was only diagnosed a few weeks ago but I was given intragel that  helps numb the area as well as clob  steroid cream I’ve also bought OB YES which I find really soothing 

    Hope that helps
