Hey guys, I was just wondering if anyone has experienced lichen sclerosus on other parts of their body other than genitals? My only case stems from my upper thigh to my knee, but I cant find anything online about it without being genital related. Just wanting to know other peoples experiences 😃

I don’t have this problem but was talking to my doctor recently and she said she had a patient where the LS went up his back.
Hope this helps.
that does help thankyou! i was diagnosed 10 years ago so im worried it was misdiagnosed
Hi Karen, yes I have on my hands and also on my leg! my daughter has had it on her tongue!!
Are you sure that isn't planus?
Google Lichen Planus instead for more info.
I was diagnosed 10 years ago with lichen slerosus, do you think it could be wrong? it looks more like bruising and thick skin than white dots
I think one could have both LS and LP at the same time. They are similar, just more location dependent. Once autoimmune, it is quite common to develop more than one autoimmune condition.
When I went to the doctors 10 years ago I was misdiagnosed with a skin fungal infection for 2 years before they decided it was LS. I was put on medication and it became less aggressive after 4 years but now im worried it might be back. Thanks for your advice I'll take it to the doctor!
I have a patch on my stomach, confirmed by a biopsy by my dermatologist.
