Lichen sclerosus et atrophicus

Lichen sclerosus et atrophicus is an inflammatory condition that affects the genital area of a small percentage of women, and less often men. The affected areas appear pink and thinned out. Often patients report marked sensitivity and irritability of the affected area. Dr. Andrew Goldstein and colleagues presented skin biopsies of the affected area before and after PRP treatment in a case report that was published in the Journal of American Academy of Dermatology in January of 2017. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27986140. A number of other studies have been published on this application of PRP.
