Thank you ladies and husbands for all the advice. (Borax Experiment post)
I was desperate at the start of the week. Blisters, enlarged cliterous and very red and sore, white skin , fear of fusing.
Started using 1% steriod twice daily 4 weeks ago.
Oestrogen Pessarys daily , now one every 4 days.
This week I started using the Borax solution mixed in a mini spray bottle.
I squirt myself with this every time after I go to the loo. Started this 2 days ago.
I can confidently say that things are calming down below now.
I do not think I have the fusing, however I am checking daily.Never looked at my vagina so much since I went through puberty.
I now feel that there is light at the end of the tunnel

So pleased to hear this Lesley, I am really glad for you that you seem to have this under control! However, don't relax on the personal checks and the checking for fusing! All the best! Jackie
Hi Lesley, I started the Borax baths and saturated solution about 10 days ago now. I too have almost a total lack of symptoms! The itching, burning and the feeling I had bugs biting me are completely gone. There is just a slight tightness in the perianal area. I have not needed to use the Clobetasol since I started! I use the spray bottle with Borax after each bathroomuse, followed by Vit E. That keeps me supple and soft down there. I couldn't be more happy to thankful to all the woman on here!!!
Just read your post and you mention Borax and some others have mentioned it, can I ask what it is? I have recently been diagnosed with LS and now I have it in my bottom. I have been using the the steroid cream everyday but I would love to know if there is something else I can use as I know I can't keep using the it forever? Plus you mention Vit E, is this also a cream and when do you use that?
Hi Stella, Borax is a naturally occurring mineral. Please read "An experiment with Borax", it is a Great information forum!
I have not had to use the steroid, Clobetasol, since I started. Prior to starting with the Borax, I had to use the steroid twice daily! I use Vitamin E oil 5_6 times a day to keep everything soft and moisturized. I also use a peri bottle to wash after each bathroom use. It has water and a small amount of baking soda in it. Hope this helps you and I would encourage you to read everything you can on here about LS. Good luck and there is Great hope here!
