REQUEST INFORMATION

What is lichen sclerosus?

Lichen sclerosus is a common inflammatory, autoimmune-related skin disease that typically appears on the vulva, peritoneum, anus, clitoris and the vaginal area. In rare cases, it can appear on other areas of the body. Lichen sclerosus can cause painful scarring that can cause itching, cracking and bleeding; interfere with urination; cause painful intercourse and vaginal pain and cause emotional distress.

More than just physical pain and irritation, lichen sclerosus can impact mental health by putting a strain on a woman’s intimate and romantic relationships. Lichen sclerosus has also been linked to a higher risk of squamous cell carcinoma.

Traditional treatment has been to use topical corticosteroids, but doctors are now using a more natural lichen sclerosus treatment built upon a time-tested method for healing.

Symptoms of lichen sclerosus

Lichen sclerosus causes skin changes. Very early on, you might not have any symptoms at all. A little later, you may see small white spots on your skin. Later, these spots might grow into larger, thin and wrinkled patches. The patches will go from the labia to the anus.

Common symptoms might include:

  • Vulvar itching (very common)
  • Anal itching, bleeding, or pain
  • Pain during sex
  • Skin bruising and tearing
  • Blisters
  • Easy bleeding from minor rubbing of the skin
  • Pain or bleeding when having a bowel movement
  • Trouble urinating or pain with urination
  • Painful erections (in men)

In most cases, the symptoms can be treated and sexual performance can be restored.

Lichen sclerosus doesn’t affect the inner reproductive organs, such as the vagina or uterus.

Causes of lichen sclerosus

The cause of lichen sclerosus is unknown. An overactive immune system or an imbalance of hormones may play a role. Previous skin damage at a particular site on your skin may increase the likelihood of lichen sclerosus at that location.

Lichen sclerosus isn’t contagious and cannot be spread through sexual intercourse.

Some factors that may lead to the condition are:

  • Problems with your immune system
  • Hormonal imbalances, especially with estrogen
  • Past skin damage

Some people do have a higher risk for developing lichen sclerosus, including:

  • Postmenopausal females
  • Uncircumcised males, as the condition most often affects the foreskin
  • Children who haven’t yet gone through puberty
