I have had psoriasis for about 2.5 years now. It started on my right hand pointer finger and my right elbow. Not bad. I also was diagnosed with inverse psoriasis on my vagina, but on the outside of my vagina on my Vulva and Labia. It has since (in the last month I would say) spread to the inner lips of my vagina. It is now painful to have sex.
I have also suffered from chronic yeast infections for about 5 years. I had the inverse psoriasis on my anus for the 3 years before I was diagnosed with it, always thought it was just a weird rash (gotta love those docs - not!)
Anyway I am using CLOPIROX - TOPICAL CREAM (Loprox) on the outside of my vagina each day and I am very depressed about it moving inside. I already had problems with sex because of my infections, but I think I FINALLY have that under control by taking 1 pill of Diflucan each month before my period, I am very upset that this psoriasis has spread and now I have problems with sex yet again.
I am only 24 so any help you can provide about treatments etc would be great. I have a dr. appointment with my dermatologist is a week or two, but I don't think I can wait that long. Any idea if I can use the CLOPIROX on the inside lips as well as the outside?
