Lichen Sclerosus is a rare, painful condition that creates itchy, patchy, white skin that appears thinner than normal. It usually affects the genital area in women, including the vulva, perineum, and anal areas, and can lead to painful sex and urination, itching or burning, bleeding and blistering of the affected area, and prolonged discomfort or pain. Anyone can get lichen sclerosus, but postmenopausal women are at higher risk. Although the exact cause is unknown, it is suspected that an autoimmune response, trauma, or simply genetics contribute to its occurrence.
Standard treatment for Lichen Sclerosus includes the use of strong topical steroid. However, the response to this treatment varies and can have unwanted side-effects. While itching may be relieved within days, it can take weeks or months for the skin's appearance to return to normal if at all… until now.
