    I honestly can’t tell you what my vulval LP looks like but it was very sore for a long time. I’d never had that version of it before, I’ve got the skin & oral versions. But I’ve had a huge amount of stress which triggered this. 

    Went to GP who said it did look like LP but she referred me to a dermatologist who specialises in vulval issues. The dermatologist took a biopsy to confirm LP. She prescribed Dermovate ointment (GP had prescribed Dermovate cream) Dermatologist said ointment is better to use in that area.

      Say you use the ointment one day but miss the next did it bother you again. Like the ointment was only temporary in the begining. I am very irritated between labia minora and labia majora. I use clobetasol on the irritated skin and it goes away but comes back next day. This white line doesnt bother me
