Lichen Sclerosus is an inflammatory chronic skin condition that mostly affects the anogenital skin. It creates localized inflammation, which changes the texture of the skin. The skin can turn white and appear waxy. The most common symptoms are itching, tears, architectural changes, and pain with sex (dyspareunia). Although there is no current cure for Lichen Sclerosus, it can be managed with proper treatment and care.
Your donations make it possible for us to fund our organization and programs so we can change the future of people with Lichen Sclerosus worldwide.
We are proud to announce we are now a part of the Autoimmune Registry Network. Together, we can share data and further research on autoimmune diseases. We're now connected with others autoimmune disease groups looking to advance research for new treatments.
We're excited to see the advancements this collaboration brings!
Did you miss our last live event, Spark the Flame?
Dr. Carolin Klein taught us how to navigate intimacy with confidence, even when dealing with LS.
She covered three important topics that will help you take control of your intimacy:
Communication: You'll learn how to openly and honestly communicate your needs and desires with your partner.
Emotional connection: Explore ways to strengthen your emotional bond with your partner beyond just sex.
Break intimacy stereotypes: Discover a world of possibilities beyond traditional expectations.
Dr. Carolin Klein, a leading sex therapist, will be leading the event with her compassionate and expert guidance.

We are pleased to announce the new Lichen Sclerosus Support Network membership!
In partnership with LS Warrior LLC, we will provide our recurring monthly and annual donors various programs to help them overcome the mental and physical effects of Lichen Sclerosus.
It takes a team of dedicated volunteers to help with research, copywriting, web design, event planning, etc., to bring quality lichen sclerosus education to our LS community.
We can use your help. That's why we're calling for all volunteers.
So you don't have to fight alone anymore
Lichen Sclerosus is more common than we think and it's often missed and this is really important.
