Hi, first time I've posted on here, but everyone looks so friendly thought I'd give it a go I went to the doctors about 3weeks ago with two pretty small 'white' areas on my labia minora or is it the majora! I always forget. I had also got a tiny fissure or lesion i think they call it in this area that had reoccured about 3 times over the last few months. I'd no idea what it could be and was shocked when the doctor said she thought it could be LS. I am now awaiting two consultant appointments one for Gynae next week and one for Urology for this Friday. The Urology was made because of frequent UTI infections, which from reading on here may well be related to the suspected LS. The Doctor told me to use hydrocortisone steroid cream 1% to ease with the fissure. The pharmacy was a problem because i told them what i was using this cream for (big mistake) as they said it wasnt licensed for 'that area'! Anyway, to cut a long story short, I was given the cream and have used it every day (just a pea sized) amount. The Doctor was a bit sketchy on how long and often to used the cream, first it was implied just for a day or two until the fissure healed, then it was suggested once a day (at nigh time) for 4 weeks then review this at my consultant appointment. I have done the latter upto now, although the lesion did heal in a matter of a day. Do you think I shoud be using it everyday? I have no itching and have never had any more than this one lesion which is tiny. From the info on here, I decided to start washing with Aqueous cream which seemed a good move. I dont think I require the barrier cream, as have no itching or soreness at all. I didnt know whether to post on here at first as not been fully diagnosed, but the doctor did seem pretty sure. Also, I suppose you are sort of admitting that you have LS by posting on here. Its a funny problem to deal with mentally I feel, do others find that? I have not even explained it to my husband yet, even though I have known for almost 4 weeks. We havnt been hitting it off lately and just couldnt bring myself to start talking about it, so its lovely to be able to post on here about it. Sorry if this post is a bit long, im not good at condensing . This site was a life saver when I came back from the doctors, so much information with such kind and honest experiences, thank you :wink:
