I have just been diagnosed... but the pruritis has been with me for over a year....in fairly extreme form. I have had candida in my 20's before - I'm now 59 - so irritation of the vaginal area is not a new experience. The very specifically localised itch of one side of my labia has been.
A wall climbing experience.
But now I have that under control with HOT douches. It feels good to have such an extreme symptom within my charge once again...hence I am questioning the need for steroidal cream..but the threat of Ca is being mooted if I don't address it allopathically.
I attended my GP last year to rule out diabetes having heard that was one of the symptoms which I did not know and I'm a nurse! The result of the blood test threw up hypothyroidism...hence the tiredness. I took sulphur staphystagra and another for a sunny personality which is trying to peep out. I had been trying acupuncture but the needles....I do think I had some benefit but wish to revert to homeopathy if poss and am waiting on emuaid to arrive which I've ordered through the post.
My other medical issue is a touch of arthritis following a hip injury when doing a somersault whilst pregnant and landing badly on the trampet!.... Just to be very specific about the cause. One joint on my finger has swelling which I'm thinking maybe arthritic slightly too. So 2 auto immune conditions. Or is that 3? Hypothyroidism can be autoimmune too can't it? What a mess!!!!!!!!
THANK YOU RICK...sorry shouting...i shall look forward to reading. could i troublr you for a live link? its outlined in blue and takes customer there direct...very self-indulgent!!
I am resigned to taking thyroxin...but understand its poss to come off it at a later date.
So whilst the itch is not troubling me no need to apply clobasol? Think I may have induced white patches by applying a 'cooling spray' which has tee tree in...which encourages growth...so I've stopped that.
I don't want to take a steroid and wish to get back into healthy eating.
I think its all about focusing on the positive. So propose to by pass clob.
