Hi i have had LS  for about 28yrs now and i was told i would be on steroid cream for life. Im sure using steroid cream has worstened my condition over the years as now my skin has thickened in places, almost leatherlike, but in other areas blisters and splits. It itches like mad when i am warm in bed which frequently disturbs sleep. I can oly say it is the most uncomfortable, painfully agonizing condition, that never fully goes away, and always comes back with a vengence. If only people understood this condition, most people have never heard of it. And yes it can be very dissabilitating. I go into depression with it, the pain can be unbearable. I have a high pain threshold, but this really is another level, as it is longterm. More like a life setence.
