Help For Lichen Sclerosus
Please read if you have Lichen Sclerosus! I had terrible pain, sores, lesions, itching, clitoris shrinking and all of the most horrific symptoms of LS in the vulva and anal area. I have found great relief maybe even remission from my symptoms of LS. I did lots of research and there may be a big connection between LS and oxidative stress. You can do your own research but I started a major anti-oxidant assault on the LS from the inside and out. I started taken a pill called “Protandim” that actually stimulates your own body to create huge amounts of anti-oxidants. It supposedly reduces the oxidative stress in most people to that of a 20 yr. old. You may experience a rash or other symptoms (for up to 2 weeks) while your body releases toxins but then will be much better! I also started using anti-oxidant creams (in that area) that include Calendula and other anti-oxidants. Calendula oil (you must use a high quality) is really a miracle for your skin and actually heals through many levels not just the epidermis. I also use Manuka honey to heal lesions. I also take baths with Calendula; the California Baby bath products are good. I have been doing this over a month and through a full cycle and actually feel like I have my life back.
