Soothe Lichen Sclerosus
Natural Treatment & Remedies From YES Lubricants
What causes Lichen Sclerosus?
Doctors don’t know the exact cause of Lichen Sclerosus, but it is classified as an autoimmune disease. It is thought that the disease may be inherited. Lichen Sclerosus can appear on skin that has been damaged or scarred from a previous injury.

Symptoms of Lichen Sclerosus in women
Women with Lichen Sclerosus usually develop small white spots and sometimes bruising on the vulva. Itchiness develops which can be severe. This itchiness tends to be worse at night and may disturb sleep. It has been described as “A Torment”.
There may also be itchy spots on the skin around the anus.
Over time, the spots can spread and merge together to form large white plaques.
The skin of the vulva or anus may eventually turn very pale and shiny, and become fragile, thin and crinkly or scarred and thickened. Some patches of skin may become inflamed and raw, and may eventually split. Sore or cracked vulval skin is more prone to vaginal infections.
Without treatment, the skin of the vulva may scar and shrink over the following months or years and can lead ultimately to the fusion of the labia.
Further complications can result in pain on passing urine, difficulty with childbirth and bowel movements.

How can YES help soothe Lichen Sclerosus?
YES personal lubricant and intimate moisturisers are the safest long term relief from Lichen Scelrosus. YES personal lubricant and intimate moisturiser uniquely protects, moisturises and lubricates sensitive tissues naturally.
This is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that mainly affects the vulva in women and female children and also the penis in men and boys. It is most common in girls before puberty and women after the menopause but can and frequently does, occur at any age. The true cause of lichen sclerosus (LS) is not known but it affects at least one in a thousand women.
Which YES product should I use?
We receive a lot of emails from customers who have found that YES products can help them to treat Lichen Sclerosus and Lichen Planus. Our natural lubricants and moisturisers can be used as daily relief from the irritation, with dilators and during intercourse. Read their testimonials about Lichen Sclerosus to help you choose the product that is right for you.
YES OB Plant-Oil Based Lubricant
The majority of our Lichen Sclerosus customers prefer to use YES OB lubricant as it is a richly soothing emollient which can be used both daily and during intercourse. It is formulated to last longer, especially during intercourse. YES OB is safe to use with silicone toys and dilators but is not compatible with condoms. If you’re using steroid cream, we recommend that you wait at least 12 hours to apply YES OB as the oil could act as a barrier.
YES WB Water Based Lubricant
YES WB lubricant is more suitable for intercourse but can also be used for daily moisture and comfort. It is compatible with condoms, natural rubber, latex and toys. The water in the lubricant will be absorbed quickly to hydrate your skin intensely. It is also pH balanced for the vagina.
YES VM Vaginal Moisturiser
YES VM is mostly used as a daily vaginal moisturiser rather than during intercourse. Like YES WB, it is water-based and pH matched to the vagina to maintain your intimate wellbeing. YES VM is also available via NHS prescription.

“The products are a pleasure to use. I use both the oil and water-based products. I suffer from both Lichen Sclerosus and Vulvodynia and recently had a bad flare-up. The oil-based has really helped me over this and I am now able to use less of my steroid ointment. I had found most lubrication products had been very stingy to use, whereas the Yes products are soothing and actually help improve my vulval conditions.”
“It has helped reduce the symptoms of my lichen Sclerosis. I’m able to use steroid ointment less frequently and have not had a serious flare since starting using Yes daily. I use the oil based Yes daily and water based for sexual intercourse. I’m so happy to have this chronic condition under control.”
