Lichen Sclerosus


Lichen Sclerosus is a chronic skin condition that primarily affects the genital areas but can also occur in other parts of the body. It causes the appearance of small white patches that can become itchy, inflamed, and painful. The condition is more common in women but can also affect men and children. The exact cause of Lichen Sclerosus is unknown, but it is believed to be a result of an immune system disorder. The disease can be managed with treatments that alleviate symptoms and control inflammation, but there is no definitive cure.


Symptoms of Lichen Sclerosus can vary from person to person, but the following are common:

  • White patches on the skin
  • Intense itching
  • Inflammation and irritation
  • Changes in the shape and function of the genital organs


To understand the most appropriate treatment for Lichen Sclerosus, it is advisable to schedule an appointment with Professor Christian Gozzi for a specialized consultation.
