Hey there everyone. I was diagnosed by my gp a couple of weeks ago. Am using the steroid cream nightly after bathing in water and baking soda, using water spray after peeing and moisturising with olive oil/ coconut oil, all thanks to advice gleaned on this incredible forum. The area around my bum is white, so are the insides of my labia, I have no ulcers or tears and not much itching but it’s all pretty scary down there and although I really I thought I was coping with this diagnosis and the new routine, I am daily becoming more anxious about cancer. I look with a mirror and have no idea what is going on, it all looks so different and weird, that I’m really starting to dread the evenings when I have to put on the steroid cream. So far after 2 weeks, there’s been no improvement of the white patches and my heart is sinking. I’m not sure how long I’ve had this, maybe 6 months, maybe longer and I have this awful growing fear. How quickly does fusing happen, in days, weeks? And when people refer to scarring do they mean the white patches? Are the scarred parts/ white patches where cancer is more likely to occur? I’d be so grateful for any help, I’m just getting more and more confused and upset the more I learn about this condition.
