@loli Thank you for the information.

I'm interested into getting into aromatherapy but I don't know what kind of oils to get. Can anyone out there lead me in the right direction and suggest what I can start out with.

Jun 25, 2018 · Lichen sclerosis anyone in Autoimmune Diseases

Following is what I posted March of last year– I hope thIs helps. I forgot to put in my original post that I also used a compound RX which contained hyloronic acid (not sure of spelling). I am happy that this condition is now under control.

Lichen Sclerosus is now under control after years of doctoring but finally finding Dr. Nyirjesy from Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, PA who I’ve been with about four years.

My symptoms were extreme itching and burning constantly everyday. I would come home from work and get in a hot bath hoping it would take away the burning and itching. These symptoms were very bad. I went to many doctors over the years and took many medications– to no avail. Nothing seemed to work.

I am now using Betamethasone (gel to apply externally), Vagifem (insert vaginally)– both twice a week. Amitriptyline (10mg daily) which is for depression but it was learned that it helps with Lichen Sclerosus but now I will be weaned off of it since my symptoms are under control.

Lichen Sclerosis is an autoimmune condition. I once used Clobetasol for a week or so but did not work for me. I now use Betamethasone DP AUG 0.05% and Vagifem 10 MCG– twice a week. It took a few months to get it to where it came under control. Also, Amitripline 10mg every day. Amitripline is used for depression but it was learned that it helped with LS.

I have vaginal Lichen Scelrosis. I went to many doctors through the years who did not help me. I finally found Dr.Nyirjesy in Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia PA who got my Lichen Sclerosis under control after a few months. It can be on other parts of the body but not in my case. There were no over the counter creams, etc but none worked for me.

What I use after every bathroom visit is a bidet bottle filled with warm water to flush away what is left on my private area. I feel cleaner doing this. My LS is now under control and I want to keep it that way.

May 28, 2017 · Depression - it's hard to ask for help in Depression & Anxiety

  1. I am posting for a friend who doesn’t feel comfortable posting for herself. I tried to have her post but she won’t. I can vouch for her following description of her illness since I’m the one encouraging her to get help. I’m posting with her permission.
    “I have no energy. No drive. I have to force myself to do all things that I must do. I’m married with two children. I was always social, but no longer want to be around people. I feel like I’m wasting my life. I feel very alone. I take Cymbalta and Welbutrin. This has been going on for a few years. I’ve gotten myself into financial trouble because I can’t think straight.
    My note: She is embarrassed of her sickness– doesn’t want anyone to know. Her children are not effected as far as I can see.
