Re: skin in groin itching, dx with lichen sclerolis, can't take it anymore

My Dr. believes I too have LS. She has ordered a biopsy which I will have done at the end of October. I am suffering terribly from this. I am using a clobetasol ointment, alternating with estrace cream. But there are still times when the itch over comes me and when I give in and scratch or pinch, then the burn sets in and the soreness. I have found that using a little vaseline at night does help as the nights seem to be the worse.

Sex is almost none existent now and I find that I am VERY depressed. I know this could be worse, it could be a death sentence but it feels like a "life sentence" and that there is no hope.
