Medical Doctor Q&A's

Dear Dr.Warner:

I am a 50 year old female who was diagnosed with Lichen Sclerosus in my late 20's. I was initially treated with testosterone in petroleum jelly, which helped somewhat. However, for the past 15 years I have been using Temovate. It has worked exceptionally well and until this past year I only used it as needed, which was intermittently. Lately I find that I have many more flare ups, which are only limitedly helped by the Temovate. In your experience, does lichen sclerous get worse during peri/menopause. Do you believe that this condition is caused by a hormone imbalance??? How do you help your patients manage it?
Thanks For the response.

I would advise that you see a competent gynecologist and
undergo a small biopsy of the area to obtain the current status of your disease. Discuss the treatment with the gynecologist based on the pathology report.
