What Are Homeopathic, Herbal Or Home Remedies For Lichen Sclerosis?

Lichen sclerosis, sometimes known as Csillag's disease or White Spot Disease, is a skin disorder that leads to chronic inflammation in women, men, or children. Lichen sclerosis attacks the genital region known as the vulva and the anal area as well. You know you have been infected by lichen sclerosis when the vulva area begin to itch intensely and sores start to appear all over, accompanied by white patches. In addition to this, pain is also experienced. The skin covering the vulva then starts to split and causes stabbing pain as it does so. This is coupled with inflammation and the region starts to swell. In the case of the anal area, the skin splits and bleeds during excretion of waste matter and this also leads to extreme discomfort. In men, the disease can also affect the penis, making it difficult to retract the foreskin due to it thickening. Needless to say, any kind of sexual activity when one is infected by lichen sclerosis also leads to extreme pain and agony.

I am not aware of any home remedies or herbal treatments for lichen sclerosis. It is unlikely that you have made this diagnosis yourself, so you should simply follow the instructions of the doctor who has diagnosed your condition. To deal with lichen sclerosis, you need to use steroid-based creams and ointments. You need to apply such creams to the symptomatic skin for say two to three months to bring the infection under control. In addition to this, you can also use bland moisturizers to soften the areas of the skin affected by the infection. Do remember to wear loose garments. Also, do remember not to use soap on the affected areas. All you need to do is wash it with clear water and dab the areas gently for it to dry.
