I think I have LS or some sort of psoriasis, pictures included

imageHello, about 3 years ago I experienced extreme itching out of nowhere on the lower part of my bottom on both sides under my vaginal opening. When this started my skin would peel a lot, skin would just come off with just wiping with toilet paper, it didn't hurt at all so I thought maybe it was just normal. It went away for about a year then came back, more peeling and this time it started to turn ashy, white and flakey when I'd itch. The itching would flare up if I even scratched myself so I had to be gentle. After a while my skin looked very flat and shiny, now I experience the whole cycle and its gotten worse and will not go away at all, no matter how gentle I am with my skin. I am 23 and I've been on birth control since 18. I'm thinking it may be lichen sclerosus. image
