Trigger for Lichen Scelerosus

There is no history of autoimmune disorders in my family so could my LS have been triggered by overgranulation and trauma of Fenton’s procedure that left further scarring? Thank you - Eileen

Clitoral atrophy how to treat

How do you treat clitoral atrophy? Is it related to lichen sclerosis?
My clitoris became flat (not fused) and less sensitive to stimulation. I was using estrogen, but it became even worse.
thanks - Yul

Steroid and thinning of the vulva

I am undergoing a trial of the strong steroid ointment as my GP thinks I may have LS. My concern is that if it’s not LS and I am applying a strong steroid might this cause thinning of the vulva? Thank you.
