Last year I was having a unusual itching in the vaginal area around the cervical area. Unfortunately I tried to relieve myself from the itching with over the counter products which did not work. Then I went to see a nurse practitioner and she prescribed some Trimalinie (some kind of ointment) that did not work. I tried using it every night and then daily after each time I used the toilet I re-applied the cream.
After a year of using these products I still had the itching and this became very uncomfortable for me. I finally consulted a gynocologist doctor and he did a biopsy on my labia which in turn he sent to the pathologist and the biopsy was examined and the results were lichen sclerosus et atrophicus/morphea which I still don't understand where this possibly could have come from or how I could have gotten this funny itching.
Help me to understand what this is all about. Please send me an email with some answers.
