Unsure of what these marks are

Posted , 8 users are following.

For the past several months I have had these small white marks on my pubic hair area, but no where else. No itchiness/other symptoms and it doesn’t seem to be spreading so have not yet seen a doctor. However doing some research and could it be extra genital lichen sclerosus? Does anyway have experience with this? What were your symptoms?

    Hi hun. I had exactly the same few months back and the white patches were freaking me out. The white patches does seem like LS best to go to your gp and get yourself diagnosed hun. Then you can start treatment ASAP before the itching comes along. Good luck hun x

      Did yours spread after a while or have you managed to control them?

    Go have it checked ASAP, don’t wait like I did, until I was covered in inner- labial ulcers, clit was twice its size and pain was ridiculous. I thought I was irritated due to sex and getting older ( 47), but I was soooooo wrong!

    Hi, you need to go see a doctor to be properly diagnosed...preferably a Vulva clinic.

    Dear Rebecca,  Although none of us LS women have experienced quite the description you give, until you can get any kind of diagnosis, I think that you would be well served by following the autoimmune diet and nutrition protocol
