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?
To apply foam, invert canister; dispense a small amount (up to a maximum of a golf-ball-sized dollop or 1 1/2 capfuls) of foam into the cap of the canister, onto cool surface (., saucer), or directly on the lesion, taking care to avoid contact with the eyes. 88 Foam will begin to melt immediately upon contact with warm skin; do not dispense directly onto hands (unless the hands are the affected area). 88 If the canister seems warm to the touch or the foam seems runny, place the canister under cold running tap water. 88 Using clean, dry fingertips, gently massage foam into the affected area; repeat until the entire affected area has been treated. 88 Avoid exposure to flames or smoking during and immediately after application. 88
