I went to the Ob/gyn for intense itching. She said

I went to the Ob/gyn for intense itching. She said it could be lichen sclerosus or dermatitis, but was leaning towards the lichen sclerosus. She really made it seem like it's not a big deal, but upon doing some research, I think it's something to not shrug off. She prescribed me Clobetasol and told me to use it twice a day until I felt I could go down to once a day. She said that some people have to use it for months, but didn't give me any more direction. I have a yearly appointment with her in December. Should I wait until then to discuss it with her again or should I see a dermatologist?

Hi, Hows it going I have had a dark red vertical line in the back of my throat for quite some time which seems to heading down towards where food goes after swallowing. I feel no pain in my throat at all (not when I swallow). The line seems to be slowly continuing downward I think there might be more red lines above my throat but I cant really tell due to limited visibility. Is this something I should worry about ?

Hi, I ve suspected I have a mild case of genital herpes since 2007 after receiving oral sex . I usually get an OB about once a year which is a red blemish in the same location. I currently have an OB of red blemishes in different location just 3 weeks after last OB ! No other symptoms. I went to GUM clinic in 2010, but by the time I got there the symptoms were gone! Do I have herpes or am I being paranoid? Thanks, CP

I m 40 years old and this is my 4th pregnancy. I delivered my first two vaginally, no complications. My 3rd was delivered at 34 weeks through emergency c-section due to my water breaking and she was still sideways - she was the sole survivor of triplets. It is also very low incision. I am now at 36 and half weeks. baby boy is healthy and head down and has been a very uneventful pregnancy. My OB is refusing to discuss VBAC and even used scare tactics to make me think me and the baby would die if I tried - too big of a risk. Everything I have found suggests that my risk is minimal. What really is MY risk?
