Hello Everyone ??
I'm new here and rather new to LS. I'm hoping I can get some advice here. My whole journey started in July 2016. I got my first UTI and after a few days on antibiotics, I had a tight feeling in my vestibule area that quickly turned to burning and soreness, as well as strange sensations like a tugging/pulling feeling. There was redness at the posterior fourchette area.
Even though I never had a yeast infection, every doctor kept chalking it up to one. None of the yeast infection meds worked. In December 2016, I was diagnosed with Lichen Sclerosus via biopsy and Vulvodynia. I stopped seeing that particular doctor because like many others I saw, he didn't have much compassion.
I am seeing a nice gynecologist now, but it really seems like every doctor has a different opinion on what is what. I do have white areas on the left and right sides of the clitoral area and a little redness with a small fissure at the posterior fourchette area. The gynecologist I'm seeing now said that is all LS. So, I've been using Halobetasol ointment (another ultra potent steroid like Clobetasol) for about a month now, but at my follow up appt with her last week, she told me to also use it on the posterior fourchette area/vestibule area and there will be another follow up on a July 10th.
My questions are:
1) Any of you ladies had some redness in that area/fissure and it was LS?
2) How long did it take before you saw visible results with the steroid ointment?
3) Does LS cause burning and soreness sensations or is that Vulvodynia causing nerve pain as a result of LS? If so, what helped you?
Thank you all and I hope we can find a cure for all of us soon! 🙂
