Vulvitis caused by low oestrogen after menopause?

Postby Frances489 on Tue Jun 13, 2017 11:04 am

I've had vulvar itching, inflammation and discomfort for nearly two years. My GP gave me Dermovate, which really helped. However, after a biopsy simply showed 'chronic inflammation' he just told me to continue with the Dermovate as and when I was itchy - which I felt was rather vague. As the initial inflammation still hadn't cleared, I asked to see a dermatologist and had my appointment this morning.

She wants me to have another biopsy and told me that she didn't think it was lichen sclerosus or cancer, so that was good. From what I've read, I'm wondering if it might be vulvitis caused by low oestrogen levels. I'm 71, so my oestrogen levels will be very low.

Just wondered if anyone of a similar age has had this problem.
