In brief: See a Doctor

Vaginal lichen sclerosis can cause serious problems such as permanent scarring.
Most of the time it can be treated with high-potency (strong) topical steroids. Patients need monitoring as the skin is at increased risk for vulvar carcinoma (skin cancer). Most often it is treated by a dermatologist or gynecologist.
