“I had been to two doctors who couldn't figure out what was wrong with me. Finally I happened to see a nurse practitioner who knew what I had right away Lichen Sclerosus. I had gone untreated for a year and was in terrible pain. There was severe disfigurement of my anus and vulva. The clobetasol treatment completely got rid of the pain and itching immediately. I had my first full night sleep in months. This med. is wonderful for this disease.”

Temovate (clobetasol): “BRAND TEMOVATE works; generic does not!! From personal experience, and that of a friend (I had brand, she had generic). I am cured, she is not. Also, hormone replacement orally and topically of estrogen plus testosterone helped greatly with the cure. I keep the area clean, using liquid soap plus Hibiclens. After drying I lightly use Nystop powder. I apply the topicals 2x daily. I can again enjoy sex, climaxing, and also have a normal life...just like I used to have. I had to appeal my insurance decision to get brand Temovate.”

“I caught this early due to itching. Started with twice daily application of the cream, then twice weekly and have been on long term maintenance for six years using only when itching recurs. My primary physician does visual check annually.”

“My obstetrician/gynecologist cured the vaginal lichen sclerosis by surgically using extra skin. Still, I have to use the ointment 2x a week on the anal skin to keep the area from pain, itching and bleeding. On other days, since it is not recommended to use too often, I use raw shea butter, with emphasis on "raw." ”

Clobex (clobetasol): “I've used Clobetasol Propinate for several years now. I have to use the ointment, the creme burns when I apply it. But it heals the cracks and itching and bleeding I get from my outbreaks.”

Temovate (clobetasol): “Worked great for me, 2 times a day for 2 weeks then once a day. Now I only use when I feel symptoms, maybe once or twice a month. I'm careful not to use to much.”

“Finally relief. Just wish that I could use it everyday. I have noticed though, that even on my 20 days off, each month the itching is less than before.”
