Lichen Sclerosus Salve ~ relieve inflammation & improve skin integrity
Lichen sclerosus (LIE-kun skluh-ROW-sus) is an auto-immune 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.
Anyone can get lichen sclerosus, but postmenopausal women are at highest risk. Left untreated, lichen sclerosus may lead to other complications.
Lichen Sclerosus symptoms may include:
Itching (pruritus), which can be severe
Discomfort, which is generally greater if lichen sclerosus appears on or around your genital or anal areas
Smooth white spots on your skin that may grow into blotchy, wrinkled patches
Tenderness of the affected areas of your skin
Easy bruising or tearing
In severe cases, bleeding, blistering or ulcerated lesions
This salve is formulated with natural botanical ingredients that are known to relieve itching and inflammation, act as antimicrobials and work to improve the integrity of the skin.
Apply salve to affected area 2-3 times per day. If the genitals are the affected area, reapply after each bathroom visit. Using a cotton round soaked in pure aloe vera juice to cleanse area first is recommended.
