    Are you referring to a urinary tract infection?  I have never heard of a water infection.  I use estrogen in an oil base to help heal the skin.  Some use borax or baking soda to help reverse the scaring but I have never used that so hopefully they will reply as well to discuss their experience with it,  I have been dealing with LS for over 20 years and although I have some scaring and labial issues for the most part I am keeping it in check with the estrogen and the clobetasol.  When you take antibiotics they kill the good bacteria that colonize in the intestines, the bladder and vagina.  You need a good probiotic to replenish them so the bad bateria do not and cannot multiply and cause issues.  Diet also helps maintain the proper PH in the bladder and the vagina to keep the bad bacteria and yeast off the bladder walls.  Start with cranberry juicebut only pure with zero sugar or other additives.  Trader Joes has it at a reasonable price.  Drink it by adding half water and half cranberry and drink 4 to 6 8ounce glasses a day and get a good probiotic
