Genital skin conditions can affect men, women and children. They often cause considerable symptoms and impact on day to day life, especially things that we take for granted such as walking, sitting, and going to the toilet.
Certain conditions are common, for example lichen sclerosus is estimated to affect up to 3% of adult females.
This area of dermatology is typically under-recognised, under-researched and under-funded. This leads to delays in getting the correct diagnosis, poor pathways of care and uncertainties in treatment.
In order to improve the care of people with genital skin conditions, increased awareness and high quality research is required.
CORALS (Core Outcomes for Research in Lichen Sclerosus): An initiative that aims to establish the most important outcomes to measure in future trials of genital lichen sclerosus
Laser treatment for Lichen Sclerosus: A project investigating the thoughts of patients, the public and health professionals in using laser therapy as a treatment for lichen sclerosus affecting the vulva
Is urinary incontinence associated with lichen sclerosus in females?: This is a systematic review and cross-sectional study to evaluate whether there is an association between lichen sclerosus and incontinence in females.
