What is Lichen Sclerosus (LS) and what are treatment options?

Lichen Sclerosus (LS), is an incurable skin condition that causes major discomfort. LS has a preference for the skin/tissues of the valva and anal region. Athough it can occur in anyone, post menopausal females are the highest at risk. There are alternative treatments being studied to improve the condition in ways the standard treatment does not. Clinical studies and trials have shown evidence that PRP, Radiofrequency and CO2 fractional lasers are effective treatments. There is still a lack of medical understanding about the causes of LS.
