    Shehla, if i am not forgetting then you posted your case many times. Even you posted so many private messages for the last two years. Is this correct?

    Cladium is specific for said condition. However, you know that homeopathy considers the whole case and not disease. The better option is, you consult your nearest qualified and experienced homeopath self and discuss your issue with him/her.

        Here is what I found out about my chronic itching.

        Vulvydinia and Lichen Sclerosis

        You want to know why no one knows or has answers to this and no cure...because these two are the result of multiple underlying issues.....keep reading

        Ok..so after 2 years of build up of itching, treating twice for my own yeast infection. (I've only had 3 before in my life) the itching got stronger and felt more like electrical impulses I had to address with mineral oil and a major scratch session.

        My labia started to look shriveled and it became sore and painful. Sometimes there were tiny hard nubs near the surface of the labia.

        I finally booked an appt. Dr. took only ONE look and said "Jock Itch"...which made sense..I never had it before...and this was a different type of itch from your standard yeast infection.....well... it wasn't jock it. I was treating for it for a month. After the second week she changed the cream. Still no effect...getting worse now. On this same visit (the first) I notified her that I did not think it was a yeast infection because no disharge and the itching felt very different...more like bugs crawling and biting you. Clitoris to anus. I also developed later a lot of body itching. I would be laying there and it felt like a fly landed on my leg or arm.

        I went back in. She was saying yeast infection now. Meanwhile she never took tissue samples or took tissue to a lab.

        Diflucan for two months! Nothing..getting worse. I'm using whatever I can find to alleviate..olive oil, vicks vapor rub, mint scented creams. (The mint would trick the nerves and the itching would temporarly lighten)

        Ok..so the next visit - cortizone creams and lidocaine cream. They did some improvement but after 2 weeks..it came back..with a vengeance.

        So....

        I find another doctor through recommendation (in NYC) - an old skool guy. he is so old skool he accepts no insurance.

        He did take approx 8 tissues samples and in the same room tested for various virus and bacterial infections right in front of me while my legs were still up. He had a microscope RIGHT ON THE COUNTER in the exam room. I got to take a look and he explained everything he was doing and why!!!

        Gave 4 vials of blood. He is checking hormone, thyroid, iron (too much too little) everything. I will find results on these in a few days.

        So here is it!!
        DRUM ROLL PLEASE.....
        Some mild yeast AND....continue drum roll...

        Gardnerella Bacteria!!! it is a highly mis diagnosed bacteria. and why???

        No friggin microscopes in the Dr's offices!!!

        Now hear this. He says..you cannot treat one or two things. There is a reason why you were not able to fight off these two bacteria. It's a whole system that got out of whack for various reasons!!! It's compounded!

        I was flabbergasted..I was immediately flashed back to the 70s! A time when logic and science was something that doctors worked under.

        When I had explained all my troubles earlier and how she just looked and said "jock itch". HE WAS LIVID.."you cannot just look and say yeast or jock itch" it has to be thoroughly TESTED and PROVEN! Then he just shook his head in disgust. Ok..he was a really sweet guy..so it sounds like he was mad..but I think it's frustrating from his point of view. You could tell.

        I'm waiting for results on Iron, Thyroid and other things he going to take hard look at.

        I was given a special cream that only ONE chemist in Manhattan makes from his own recipe. It is a steroid cream. He will also not prescribe prednisone..he has a milder form and one other antibiotoc for the gardnerella - specific-

        After the first 24 hours of starting treatment..my labia looks almost back to normal. The itching is now much less frequent at the 24 hour mark..and I accomplished so much the next day!!!

        Also note..I had a bad infestation. My legs were retaining water and I started to have a rash on my high inner thighs. I big skin sensitivity was brewing. Apparently, it behaves like a virus injecting itself into your cells. The cells become infected and the bacteria multiply and infect other cells. (Inclusion)

        You cannot screw around with this. Demand or find a doctor that has a microscope and demand he test for gardnerella while you are there!!!

        If you want the name of this very special doctor (nice older man) who is very thorough in his exam - he does "everything" including colon cancer screening while you are there. Ask in this forum for it and I will try to reply soon.

        GO!!!!

          UPDATE to Lichen Sclerosis and itching

          A lot has happened since I got rid of the streptococcus.

          The best advice I can give at this point is be pro-active and informative on the nature of genes, hormones, proteins, enzymes and DNA. It sounds hard..but it's not as hard as we are told or thought...and as I engaged in the education..it all helped me think in a broader spectrum of possibilities to the cause of my problems.

          Hang with me....

          So some itching returned...after being on steroid creams and anitbiotics for the streptococcus.

          ...And it was recommended by my doctor that I go see an endocrinologist!

          Why?

          Because it turns out the thryroid, pituitary, hormones, proteins and foods can do a lot more damage than you think.

          After my first blood work..Eureka! I found at that my TSH levels were extremely high...and after a few visits and blood work..they concluded that I was Hypothyroid and had an overactive immune system. (please look up the nature of the connection of the pituitary gland and the thyroid gland as it can really **** you up if this is not working..in a thousand ways)

          By the third bloodwork (they suspected) but confirmed had Hashimotos...And what do you know?...Lichen Sclerosis (the ONLY data you can get on it) is caused by an overactive immune system..and that's all they know. AND having Hashimoto's means..my own body considered my thyroid gland a foreign object.

          How rude!

          My own immune system was attacking the very THING that was regulating all the other hormone functions in the rest of my body. I mean ****!

          Now i'm on Synthroid hormone replacement (everyday) and it has been an incredible improvement Being Hypothyroid makes you very huge, very tired, very stiff joints, short of breath and feel like you are so old. I see pictures of me now..compared to two years ago..what a difference!!!

          So trying to figure out the hashimotos/lichen sclerosis thing...(but yet..can't remember a damn thing about genetics from college) I decided to run over to Khan Academy (A site dedicated to free education without bullshit of test and quizzes..but gives you the real important data up front and explained in a very easy way) AND brush up on the BIOLOGY section starting from the (and yes..you have to start here first) Introduction to Evolution and Natural Selection..on up to Phases of Meiosis.

          Ok..so watching these,I started to think about the thousand of proteins I put in my body (see celiacs disease Coeliac disease - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ) ..and thinking about the antibodies and immune system...and how easy it is for the body to mistake and ingested particle for a foreign object.

          I immediately cut out wheat gluten AND I cut out all soy proteins. I did this after looking at seminars (yes online) throughout the world given on autoimmune diseases..and realized that a lot of these symptoms are cross connected to other auto-immune diseases.

          Within a WEEK of stopping bread, pasta, teriyaki sauce (which I love and just "noting" the processed stuff that use soy.) I had the most remarkable improvement EVER!!! Trader Joes is my new grocery store. ALSO NOTE: There is a bromide / iodine connection which you MUST read about affecting the thryroid gland. Bromide (used in making bread rise - A-Ha!!) is so closely related to the iodine..that the receptors on the thyroid gland....pick it up thinking it's iodine..which..if the thyroid doesn't GET actual iodone...look out!!!

          After two weeks...of noticeable improvement....I tested ingesting some bread..no real problem...THEN on SUSHI Night...I took some edamame..the "real McCoy" soy product..the source of all soy and all products that contain soy....VOILA...itching galore..withing 4-6 hours of ingesting!

          ****!..ok..that was interesting..

          I still have an increased itching 4 days BEFORE and 4 days AFTER my period..but ok..the rest of the month is very tolerable.

          I still have to figure out the connection of the menstruation hormones in that one week. I remember from health class..it's the most dynamic time in a woman's body. That one friggin week.

          But that's where I am now.

          My body is still a mess from being hypothyroid for so long...and stupid me for not recognizing it. My body is still changing...and I'm still getting my "figure" back.

          It may work itself out over the long haul (i'm giving it another 6 months of hypo treatment)...but at least I suffer much less because I think one of the causes of lichen sclerosis is auto-immune / hormone / enzyme connected. I can feel the difference.
