White tissue

Posted , 5 users are following.

I took a thorough look at my genitals today and noticed that when I spread my labia majora, I have a long, white, very soft raised ridge of white flesh. It looks a little like a white noodle attached to the vestibule. IT's not painful or itchy. I an worried and tried to call my GYN for an oppointment but he must be on holidays. I am 48 years old and have had LS for quite a few years. I don't think I have had LS in the vestibule area though. Is this normal with aging? or is it LS ?

    LS is a progressive ailment. I am unsurprised that it may have spread.

    long may you continue to be itch free !

    A white line in a figure 8 shape is a sign of LS. I had two very faint ones between my buttocks when first diagnosed. They went away with steroid use and other issues subsided, but I now require a stronger steroid and the disease is not subsiding. I get more of a buzzing feeling than an itch.

    As you've already been diagnosed I assume you have been using steroid ointment. Do you use hormone cream or have you not hit menopause yet? My gyn said my LS was definitely caused by too little estrogen. Had atrophy before the LS.

      Confusing, isn't it? What in the heck is LS? How can more than one thing cause it? If it attacks somewhere else in the body does it cause deterioration of tissue the way it does of the genitals? Haven't heard anyone say that.

      Some people have years of agonizing itch yet aren't losing architecture. Others have no itch but lose parts of their anatomy. It's very frustrating to be battling something that seems amorphous.
