Ever wonder what's going on with Lichen Sclerosus today? With all the different perspectives and voices what does the science say?
I speak with Leia Mitchell a clinical research coordinator, medical scribe, and clinical assistant working with some of the top names in the Lichen Sclerosus medical field.
She lays out the findings of a recent clinical review, Vulvar Lichen Sclerosus: Current Perspectives.
We discuss what the science says about what causes LS, how it presents, and the different ways to treat it. We dive deep into the different treatments.
From your first line corticosteroids all the way to the fourth and fifth line treatments such as Platelet-Rich-Plasma and CO2 Lasers.
Are you applying your topical treatments correctly? Leia details what your doctor should be telling you about corticosteroids and your maintenance schedule.
Be prepared to learn something new.
