Would like to hear from others with this conditions. Have just received the diagnosis and want to find out what we may all have in common.
I have in my live had:
sensitive skin and break outs from detergent, soaps, lotions, etc
overweight at the moment & working on shedding pounds & eating healthier
in my fifties
What I have done to help my skin problems in the past:
Used Drift to wash clothes, no dryer sheets in dryer, used very little perfume, used very little body lotions, wear cotton panties, don't wear tight hoses unless I just have to, when I had what I thought was a yeast infection started eating yogurt & sometimes took asodopilus(sp), now trying to cut back on my sugar intake, not eating as much junk food, drinking lots of water/juices, using Aveeno or Ceplohol(sp) soap to wash with during this outbreak
My lichen is on my stomach area and down both legs stopping above knee. I have one tiny spot on my bottom. I just thought I had dry skin patches after using an exfolicator cream. I guess it was a good think I went on to the dermotologist. I usually just ride the flare ups out. If any have this and want to share helpful ideas, please do. I know it helps me to read what others are doing and how they are living with it. My dermotologist gave me a gel to rub on my lichen which I have been putting on the last week, twice daily. The lichen is better, but not gone in these areas. I just wonder if everyone's presents itself as dry patches. Are there stages to this? I am doing my best to be proactive and learn all I can and how to deal with it. Do any of you that have this have other health problems that you know of that may be connected to this? Post if you can shed any light on this because if we all share our stories, maybe we can find help in the information.:)
