Lichens Sclerosis - any new tips or advice?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Been dealing with lichens sclerosis for over 30 years (ugh). I am noticing certain fabrics contained in shorts (like polyester) really cause issues. Anyone else?  Any other good new tips for dealing with this scourge?  smile

    I switched to cotton underwear/briefs.  (Next to that I add borax to my laundry dete)  Over top of the underwear I wear loose fitting shorts and this way I get away with the not so natural fabrics.  It's always a puzzle at the same time, mistakes can easily be made.  Today's world is so full with artificial fabrics.

    Hya hun I’ve replaced all underwear for 100% cotton. Can’t wear anything else as it gives a flare up, I also change knickers a few times a day that for sum reason helps me. Everyone’s different hun, just experiment. M&S do a big range.

    I only wear  cotton panties. I put a 100% organic cotton ( Rael) in my panties before I goop up 5-6 times a day, and I mostly wear dresses, skirts and loose yoga pants. The seams of pants/ jeans, tailored shorts all intersect in the wrong spot and make everything very warm, which causes some irritation.  I sit  in my car with my legs apart and lwt the AC blow up my skirt and I don’t sit out on my back patio in our 100 degree plus heat. 

    Stay cool, stay loose, stay relaxed and all is well.
