Re: Can I go SWIMMING if one has Lichen Sclerosis?

You should ask your doctor, but from what I've read on the internet, it is NOT contagious, so you CAN"T transmit it from person to person. So, you won't give it to anyone else if you swim. I've read that some people find the chlorine from swimming irritating, others find it helpful. Same for salt water from the ocean. So, it depends on your body.

There are some support forums for LS on the internet: I hope you find some and get some great advice from there!
