I was wondering if anyone has any ideas how to keep their symptoms minimal. I get flare-ups after my menstrual cycle. So I am constantly having flair ups, then start to heal, only to have another flair up month after month. I am so annoyed by this. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

      I do, for sure. Sometimes my skin has been so sensitive that it's torn & bled a little.

      Toilet paper irritates my skin. Does anyone else have this problem?

      Any ideas about what triggers flare ups? Is itching intense?

      showering before bed, using tampons instead of pads, and sleeping without underwear will likely minimize symptoms. i have also seen people use coconut oil to prevent flare ups during vulnerable times, but have never tried myself

      It seems to me the dryer I keep the area the less itching and flare up I have
