Patient Comments: Lichen Sclerosus - Symptoms

What were your symptoms associated with lichen sclerosus?

Comment from: betty, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: July 26

I had incredible itching, then noticed a lesion/raw spot and went to ob/gyn. Tested for yeast infection and herpes, both negative. I was told to soak in tub several times a day, use soaps, detergents, etc. with no perfumes. Finally went to a gyn specialist who knew exactly what it was, biopsy confirmed. Treated w/steroid ointments and cream. That was eight years ago and it is still an ongoing issue.
