I've been to the doctors a number of times, I was originally given thrush cream, then a steroid cream. However it made matters worse. These spots, cuts, blisters and flakey skin occurred. I can barely walk and in lots of pain, especially when urinating. I went to the out of hours doctors last night because I couldn't stand the pain, he swabbed the area, gave me an antiviral, antibiotics and a thrush tablet. But is still unclear on what it is until the swabs come back. What does it look like?

How do I insert a picture?

    I don’t know, because my vagina is totally clear. No visible signs, just awful continual itching.  I have exhausted every avenue of research and am feeling truly hopeless.  I wish you good luck in your endeavors to cure yourself

    They NEED to do a biopsy and check you for Lichen Sclerosis! Insist on it!! I had the same symptoms on and off for years!!! Please go and insist.  They finally figured out that it was Lichen but unfortunately mine turned into vulva cancer... please go right away. Good luck

      They checked me for that already. I will do it again.  I have ms, and my doctor keeps telling me there’s no connection.  How were you ultimately helped?  Are you better?

      Thank you for answering!

    Yes ask for a second opinion and see if it’s lichen sclerosis. Also as soon as you finish your antibiotics take a course of pribotics. Antibiotics distroys your friendly bacteria in the gut. This is a uk forum, you don’t say where you are from. If you live in the uk pop into your sexual health clinic, that’s what I did and got diagnosed with lichen sclerosis.

    good luck in solving your problem x
