Hello Mrs Optimistic

Excellent name and welcome to the forum.

I personally don't have any experience of lichen sclerosus but have found a page about it on our site you may find helpful. This page also gives details for an international support group for people living with the condition and personal stories.

I hope this is of some help and no doubt others will chime in with more information for you.

Take care.

I was diagnosed with lichens sclerosis about 3 years ago. There is nothing fun about it and the long term treatment of a cream can cause other unpleasant side effects. I appreciate the link. Thank you very much.

Thank you! I have seen many forums and this one seems to be really supportive. I am so young and going through many things that its really nice to meet people that really care! No one else in my family has lichens sclerosis so they do not understand. I appreciate the support of all who have answered me!
