I am at my wits end. I have been diagnosed with Lichen Sclerosus and it has spread significantly and rapidly over the last year. I have multiple patches on my back, chest, arms and groin. The itching is intense at times, annoying almost all the time. Dermovate and Neresone has not helped. Protopic has not helped and I believe has worsened the spreading? I have been prescribed antihistamies by GP but they don't even take the edge off the itch. Dermatologist just says "it might clear up, keep applying the dermovate". She doesn't seem to be concerned about the rate it is spreading. Going back to GP about the itching next week. I can't enjoy anything at the moment, even sitting and reading a book or watching TV due to the itching. I have a constant worry about the spreading - where will it ever stop? If ever. This is a living hell. Anyone else here suffering it with it in the same areas as me?
