Lichen Sclerosus


Lichen sclerosus is a chronic skin condition characterized by the appearance of white, thin, and wrinkled patches of skin that can become easily bruised or scarred. It commonly affects the genital and anal areas but can also occur on other parts of the body. The exact cause of lichen sclerosus is unknown, but it is believed to be related to an overactive immune system or hormonal imbalances.
