hi everyone one, I'm in desperate need of some help.

I had laser hair removal to the bikini line area back in feb. Around March / April time I started with itching around the vulval area only and not inside the vagina. I tried coconut oil, vasaline, ice packs e45 itch cream and the when to the doctors after coping for 4 months. I've since been washing with aveeno, tried 1% hydrocortisone, was prescribed antibiotics (TBH only managed 2 days worth) few days of fucibet steroid cream. 6 months on from it starting I've been prescribed and emollient (zerobase) and Dermovate to apply twice a week for 14 days. However I'm 6 weeks pregnant which the GP knew on prescribing the dermovate.

Everywhere online says not to use it ad it can cause birth defects. I'm at a total loss as to if I should use it as I've seriously cosidered cutting my when Im crying from it. I don't sleep now with it either. 3 GPs have looked at the area and said it all looks fine!!
Any advice please especially RE the use of dermovate

Hi OP, sorry to revive an old threat, but was just wondering how you got on with this? I'm having a very similar problem!! Including the dermovate prescription which I'm in two minds about using! So was wondering how it all went for you.
