Are there any teens with lichen sclerosus? I’ve been struggling to find other people around my age who also have it.

      I’m suspected to have it, but I’ve been too scared to get a biopsy to get diagnosed, and some doctors think I’m too young to have it even though age doesn’t rule it out at all

        @goldaxolotl you’re definitely not too young. I’m 17, diagnosed at 16. I didn’t have to get a biopsy, all the doctors I’ve seen were able to tell just by looking but they do say it’s harder to diagnose in young people because it looks different. Maybe try seeing another doctor for a second opinion. When I was seeing regular gynecologist I had better luck with a dermatologist. Eventually I found a gynecologist who was specifically a vulvar specialist, I’ve had the best luck with her so far.
