Sorry to hear about your struggle! I've had the seb derm rash on my chin, nose and eyebrows for almost 8 months now. I've used all the shampoos and creams/ointments my dermatologist recommended without much luck. After doing some more research I decided to try something new. I've been using it everyday for 3 days and the rash is almost completely gone...Diaper rash cream! Yep, I couldn't believe it, but I'm finally looking pretty normal again! Specifically, I'm using Earth's Best Organic Diaper Relief Ointment. I put it on the spots and let it sit for an hour or two. I am still using nizoral cream twice a day as I was before, but I didn't see the rash start to disappear until i used the diaper rash cream. Hopefully this helps someone. I almost lost hope until this recent discovery. Be well!
I was finally diagnosed with LS about 3 years ago, I’m sure i have had it much longer. Like many others, I have suffered with lack of lubrication, itching, tears, etc. I have a long term partner of over 30 years, we haven’t had sex for more than 2 years this time. Can anyone give feedback on the use of Vaginal Dilators. I would like to try them, and the Dermatologist and Doctor at the GU cloinic agreed it would be a good idea. I just wondered if anyone has experienced any side effects, good or bad. Any feedback will be appreciated.
So glad I found your site after reading all the other alarming information. I was diagnosed a year ago with LS, but everyone has talked of Gynaecologist referals so how come I ended up in Dermotology? What worries me are the lumps & bumps which are referred to and which I have plus blisters. Help is this normal? I am using an emulent based cream for washing & barrier protection & a stronger steriod cream (as the first cream didn’t work, but having said that, was I not using enough, as they say sparingly!) How do you know if you are reacting to the creams etc with this problem? How demoralised I feel as a woman who looked forward to & shortly enjoyed the freedom of sex after her hysterectomy to now not being able to have sex. (Sorry feeling low). Its also funny that after the ‘op’ I started swimming again & it is said that clorine can affect you, it was a few months after when problems started together with a reaction to 2 medications really kick started it. I also have read that you can be alergic to ‘sperm fluid’ is this then also another starting point after the ‘op’ since previous protection used?
