I was diagnosed with LS nearly a year ago. I do get sore cracks, kept under control with steroid cream. I am not aware that I have had any of the other classic symptoms, no white spots, no itching. Most of you on the forum complain of severe itching. If my skin cracks it stings when touched but clears up pretty quickly with the steroid. My biggest problem is my clitoris which constantly feels as though it has red hot pins in it. This gets worse at night and can keep me awake. Just inside my vagina burns if I attempt to have sex, and on a recent holiday in the Med the strong salt water burned keeping me awake until I took painkillers and twigged what the cause was. I have an under active Thyroid and feel because of that and the cracking I may have been pigeonholed. I have a Dr appoinment tomorrow and am trying to do as much homework as I can. I saw a vulval health consultant last October who gave me a hand out and told me I wouldn't be able to have sex, then SHE said goodbye. Thinking of going private. I'm in south wales. Anyone know a good consultant, I don't mind travelling, anything to stop the burning, and to be able to make love to my wonderful husband. Thanks for 'listening'.
