Hi all,I've been under the hospital for 5months as I had really bad mouth and genital ulcers which were so bad I was hospitalised for 4days. I was referred to a dermatologist straight away (after having several swabs taken for herpes etc). She did 2 biopsies on the ulcers down below and gave me prednisalone and dapsone along with lidocaine. This was in sept. all was well and they cleared up until 2weeks ago when I thought "oh no not again". I received a letter from my consultant about my biopsy results and was mortified when I read it. Basically she said they shown severe ulcerations (think I worked that out as its me that's in pain with them) then it went on to read the cause was not obvious and it makes her wonder if it is a condition called idiopathic orogenital aphthae. I did no more than google this condition and it goes on about bd and how it could take several years to diagnose?. I've been to see my consultant today and she highered my dosage off dapsone and I go back on 21nov. She wasn't even bothered about looking how bad my ulcers are at the moment. Feel like getting a second opinion to be honest. Thanks for reading
