4 doctors agree

In brief: Lichen sclerosis

Perhaps you have something else in addition to lichen sclerosis.
I suggest you see your doctor for a complete diagnosis. A biopsy is needed to confirm your diagnosis. You may need a combination of medicines. Because cloberasol is a high strength steriod it should be used sparingly
