... period I had a flare up. I was upped to 20 mg of prednisone but I'm still in a lot of pain when I'm peeing. a lot of pressure burning and sharp pains. they are upping my dose to 30 mg now and I'm just curious if anyone else has had experience with this. My doctors don't seem to have a lot of answers and I'm looking for some support during this time.
I have only been prescribed clobetasol cream .05% for my Lichens Planus and Lichens S.
It is a steroid cream that I use when I have flare ups which is often. It took me a year to get diagnosed and I found a Dr. that knew a lot about the condition! You really need to find a gyn doctor that is knowledgeable about this condition because many have never seen or heard of it and it will drive you insane!!! My Dr works for a low income clinic and has treated 100's of women, many in Mexico! I live in Arizona and am so thankful i found a compassionate Dr that understands how terrible this disease is!! I personally have done tons of research on it and believe that stress can aggervate it! The burning and itching is so painful, and sometimes the cream burns for a few minutes, but it does help me! prednisone is a very strong medication that can be great yet cause a lot of bad side effects!! I wouldnt want to take it for very long, but dont just quit taking it without checking with dr or pharmacy! Find support any where you can!! Good luck!
