Hello from JustAnswer.What evaluation has been done for the burning?Have you been tried on any medicines for the burning beyond the clobetasol and lidocaine that you are currently using?
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 6 months ago.
I had asked for some further information and have not heard back. I did review your other questions, and there are a couple of comments that are pertinent. The other expert is correct that there are some women that have pain and burning of the vulva with no clear cause that an be identified. However, since you are diagnosed with neuropathy elsewhere, it is possible that the neuropathy is affecting the nerves to the vulva. The other major comment is that when someone is having significant symptoms that cannot be explained, then it would be appropriate to consider being seen at a teaching/research hospital. The doctors at these facilities have more experience in diagnosing rare diseases or unusual presentations. In addition, thee are the facilities at which new technologies are being developed, so these doctors may be able to offer diagnostic or therapeutic approaches that are not yet available to community physicians.
