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.

It will help to validate the very real and difficult challenges faced by dermatology patients globally. Data collected will support local, national, and international advocacy work for more research, better treatments, and healthcare policies and, ultimately, will improve the lives of dermatology patients.

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.
Lichen Sclerosus is more common than we think and it's often missed and this is really important.
