In brief: Potent Steroid Best

The evidence of topical testosterone being useful in the treatment of lichen sclerosis is weak.
Most studies demonstrate better control with the potent corticosteroid clobetasol dipropionate (0.05%). The benefit of using Protopic is mixed. I would recommend seeing a board certified dermatologist for this condition. Good luck.
