Suggest medication for lichen sclerosus
treatment depends on severity, corticosteroid,
I have gone through your query.
Lichen sclerosus may get better on its own. Treatment requirements depends on the severity and symptoms of the disease.
Treatments help reduce itching, improve your skin's appearance and decrease further scarring.
Corticosteroid ointments or creams are commonly prescribed for lichen sclerosus. Initially, you'll generally have to use cortisone creams or ointments on the affected skin daily.
Other options are considered when corticosteroid does not help, these include. Immune-modulating medications, such as tacrolimus (Protopic) and pimecrolimus (Elidel), Ultraviolet light treatment, for nongenital areas.
This provisional advice provided by me is based entirely on the input provided to me. I would suggest examination by the doctor.
I hope this suggestion might be of some help to you.
