In brief: Lichen Sclerosus

Lichen sclerosus (lie-kun skluh-row-sus) is an uncommon condition that creates patchy, white skin that's thinner than normal.
Lichen sclerosus may affect skin on any part of your body, but most often involves skin of the vulva, foreskin of the penis or skin around the anus.
