Just wondering if anyone else out there has had a similar experience to me? I've been on Clobatesol around 11 months. From the start I was unconvinced that it was helping me and felt I might even be allergic. Doctors and dermatologist however were dismissive and advised me I must continue the treatment. One Gyne told me to increase the to twice a day, the dermatologist told me to tail it off and go back to once daily during flare ups. I have found that every time I tail it off I get really red and sore, my skin peels and burns and becomes tight. I have tried bicarbonate of soda baths, sea salt baths, coconut oil, Hydromol, aloe vera, to name but a few of the more successful treatments. All alongside the clob advice. Recently I visited an Italian gyne because the clob was not working (currently temporarily staying there) She advised I should use a different steroid, Advantan combined with estriol cream. Applying them for only 10 successive days a month, then nothing. Estriol morning, steroid at night. For those 10 days things really improved but now, having stopped as advised, one week later I'm really suffering the peeling/red/burning/tightness again. At my wits end and feeling very low and hopeless. I want to stop steroids altogether because everything seems to have got worse and more constant since I was prescribed them last year. Don't know if I'm rebounding/withdrawing or flaring up again. Don't know if I should apply another dose of steroid and ignore the current 10 day only treatment plan. Has anyone had a similar experience and come out the other side? I know it's a chronic condition but I can't seem to get the treatment right or find a health professional who'll listen!
