For today’s video, we are continuing our discussion of sexual health and lichen sclerosus and discuss recurrent tearing and lichen sclerosus. Tearing with sex may happen to some folks on occasion; for others, it can happen often. When folks keep experiencing tearing, this is called recurrent tearing. In this video, I talk about why LS skin is prone to tearing, which areas tend to tear more frequently, who tends to tear, and options to manage recurrent tearing.
