Vaginal Psoriasis and Coconut Oil – This Lady Swears By It
I recently received a letter from “Lilly” about her battle with vaginal psoriasis, and I just had to share it. Having gone through numerous doctors (some of whom thought it was her kinky sex life that had painted Love Town red), she took matters into her own hands, and found relief from coconuts! I’m not going to spoil it, so here’s the letter.
I also have vaginal psoriasis and I came to this site upon looking up solutions. People always say “go to your Dr. and they’ll fix the problem,” but honestly, I’ve had psoriasis on my vagina, butt and body for the past 12 years. I’ve gone to NUMEROUS doctors and dermatologists and they all act confused, and call it dermatitis, which is a vague as hell diagnosis, like they can’t figure it out.
They’ve even tested me for sexually transmitted diseases and, when they saw my butt, asked me if I was into anal sex… which I’m not, and was really offended that they jump to sexually transmitted diseases when it’s clearly not.
It took me a ten minute internet search to find a picture of something that looks EXACTLY like my issue and all my doctors and dermatologist would do is tell me to change my soap, and hand me cortisone creams that never work, and push me out the door. This is extremely troubling and frustrating because this is my prized possession and it feels like I can’t fully enjoy myself as it can be painful and irritated…
But so far the only thing that has given me ANY relief whatsoever is organic, cold pressed extra virgin coconut oil. I say that very specifically because all three of those factors are important. The uses for coconut oil are endless. In fact there’s over a hundred uses for it, ones of which include psoriasis & eczema. And NO soap down there at all.
Also I recognize after shaving down there that’s when my psoriasis flares up the most so I make sure to always have a good new blade so the skin isn’t being pulled on or irritated, and use non-scented moisturizing soaps or shaving gels that are made organically.
Also, during the day I will bring non-scented baby wipes with me and when I use the bathroom will make sure if I’m hot or sweaty to wipe the area and then pat it dry, because that’s another irritating factor!
Dealing with different doctors and dermatologists who have no idea what they’re doing for the past 12 years had made me bitter. Number one being my sex life can be difficult if it’s bad and plus it’s embarrassing. It also has affected my confidence level as well.
But I’m lucky to have a loving boyfriend who has been great! But anyways, so far it’s been really helping. It’s comforting to know someone else has had the same issue as me, although I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy! I hope this helps you and anyone else that may see this! Good luck to all. 🙂
My favourite coconut oil brand
Reading Lilly’s letter reminded me that I have to get a blog post out there about coconut oil. It’s unbelievably good for psoriasis. It’s anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and a great moisturiser. The brand that I like to use, if I can get my hands on it, is Nutiva. It has a very light, delicious taste that makes it great for cooking with as well as lathering on your body like a loony monkey. I actually ingest or use coconut oil everyday, normally a tablespoon in my morning tea.
