My Lichen sclerosis

Posted , 3 users are following.

After five years of being very uncomfortable, itchy, painful and sometimes depressed, I thought I would have to put up with this horrible condition for the rest of my life.

I had a biopsy in February and my consultant said that I should use Aqueous Cream instead of the steroid creams that I had been using, so I thought I would give it a try.

Now almost two months later after using the aqueous cream regularly I am almost out of the woods with the itching and burning that the sclerosis creates. I haven't had any itching at all for three weeks ! The scabby skin has healed, redness is gone and I have got back to my normal live with healthy skin in my genital area.

If anyone wants to try using the aqueous cream then please give it a try, I don't think you will regret it. Of course you should consult your health care team first, but maybe even they might not even have heard of using anything other than the steroid creams.

Good luck to you all,

be patient and assertive, you could be getting better in just a few weeks.

    Really pleased that you have found something that works for you. Did you have to get it on prescription or can you buy it from the chemist?

    Hi Lynn, yes you can buy this cream at most chemists, you can also get it from some supermarkets.

    There is also something called "Itch relief cream" by E45 but is twice the price and as far as I can tell is much less effective.

    I hope you find it works as well for you as it has for me.
