Conclusion for How to Get Vulvar Lichen Sclerosus into Remission

In sum, clinical remission means there are no active signs of lichen sclerosus. Active signs are things like new color or texture changes and/or new scarring. Studies looking at remission and vulvar lichen sclerosus state topical corticosteroids are the best treatment to get into remission. We also share other adjunct therapies and add-ons that can be beneficial for getting into remission, such as stress management, nervous system work, pain counseling, therapy, diet and nutrition, supplements, and more.

    Clobetasol seemed to make me present to Doctors as having the LS under control. But I still felt the burning and vulva was still quite red. Adding Vagifem and a compounded Estradiol/Testosterone cream did wonders for me! I am feeling quite a bit better now, if not “normal” on most days. 😊
