Steroid cream for vulvar dermatitis

Lichen sclerosus is treated with potent topical steroids to alleviate symptoms, prevent architectural damage, and reverse histologic changes. 31 – 33 The recommended regimen for lichen sclerosus begins with a high-potency corticosteroid (., clobetasol propionate % ointment [Temovate]) used daily until all active lesions have resolved (usually in two to three months), then tapered to once or twice per week. 32 , 33 A 30-g tube of clobetasol ointment should last three months or longer. 33 Alternatively, the patient can use a moderate-potency steroid (., beta-methasone valerate % cream [Beta-Val]) to maintain remission. Despite known side effects of long-term topical steroid use, one small study showed that treating lichen sclerosus with moderate-potency topical steroids for up to 39 months caused no side effects other than erythema. 34

Absolutely my ob/gyn prescribed this for me. I had vaginal swelling/inflammtion caused by vulvar vestibulitis also called vagismus... it helped greatly with the irritation and swelling. I do not believe you should use it "long-term" unless told it is okay by your doctor. One question did your doctor TELL you to apply it to your vagina or did he prescribe it for some OTHER area of your body? Different types or formulations of this product are used for specific areas of the body. I was advised to use it externally, NOT to put it far up inside the vagina but pretty much in the vaginal lips and an inch or so inside. As IO said stick to the application directions provided by your MD. Blessings, Shelly
