Hi i have been trying to find anyone who is using protopic to fight LS.

I'm using clob but have been given protopic as an alternative!

Not sure what i should do clob is holding it mainly at bay but i have shrinkage of the labia and issues of

Splitting if not careful. 🙃

      Thanks for responding.

      The dermatologist keeps telling me clob is to strong. I dont have any itch so far but sore and a little splitting.

      I really dont want to rock the boat. I had a terrible time 3years ago getting it to calm down. Really thought if this is my life i cant cope. So I'm worried. I asked the chemist about it but she couldn't help me!

      Hi i just ready your other post to me a few days ago. It also advises you not to go into the sun and don't drink! The sun wouldn't bother me. But i do enjoy drinking at the weekend keeps me sane

      Kay, I’m like a fish... I don’t find any undue affects with the protropic.... also I don’t tend to expose my lady bits to the sun and I live in a hot country and have a tan....x

      My understanding is that clob is the strongest steroid available for LS and there are weaker steroids such as betnovate available you may like to try. Protropic is the strongest non steroid and there are also weaker versions. 

      I can’t use clob as it activates my hpv... protropic doesn’t for me... 

      ‘I also use borax baths 2-3x a week and pat with tissue dampened in borax solution after the loo when at home. 

      We are all different and what works for one may not work for another. For me protropic and borax work (for now/the last year)

    I tried Protopic once. It was like a chemical burn. It was horrible, however everyone is not the same. You may do fine.

      Hi

      It's a non steroid cream that works as a supresser of your bodys defence system.

      Its new to me so just reading up on it to see how safe it is to use.

      To your other question dermovate is another steroid cream/ointment simular i think to clob. Clob is the one i have been using for 3 years to control LS.
