Waiting lists for Women’s Gynaecological problems in UK are at a critical level.
I share this informative Post on an area of health which is still not discussed more openly, due to the sensitivity of the subject.
It informs on ‘women’s bits’ ‘problems down below’.
For those enlightened. it offers information on Lichen Sclerosis a problem affecting the most intimate parts of the female anatomy.
“Help – the steroids are not working – Helping women with refractory vulvar lichen sclerosus”, details how best to manage this difficult and not uncommon health condition.
Lichen Sclerosus is commonly seen as a problem affecting women, but men and children can struggle physically and emotionally too.
The Post offers clear advice on how to treat the symptoms, and highlights the importance of checking symptoms to dismiss more serious health challenges e.g. Vulva cancer.
Professional advice is shared on the continued use of steroid cream to keep L.S. conditions controlled, not just when flare ups occur.
This health problem requires highlighting due to the levels of e.g. embarrassment, shame, depression, which stop many women from seeking help to manage this debilitating condition sooner, rather than later, when the symptoms have had months or years to escalate in intensity.
Thorough investigation is required because Vulva Cancer needs to be checked for elimination purposes.
There are several health problems which may need to be eliminated, and essential is the regular use of steroid ointment to manage this chronic condition.
Steroid cream or ointment is commonly considered to be only used sparingly, but treating L.S. requires regular use.
There is an excellent Facebook page specific to this sensitive subject titled:
lichen Sclerosus-sclerosis-UK Support Group for Women.
I offer an article I wrote titled: Lichen Sclerosis: Female Genital Health for The Lifestyle Medicine Summit in 2021.
I am a Lifestyle Prescriptions® Health Coach.
My article offers general information on the subject.
