It would also be easier to control his diet and get him used to it at a younger age.

Did they biopsy the lesion or the skin next to it? If they biopsied the lesion itself then the test would be a false negative as the biopsy needs to be taken from intact skin next to the lesion.


They biopsied the lesion itself AND the skin next to it.

I turned 38 yesterday, and was diagnosed with LS about 5 years ago. My mother was just diagnosed with it maybe 2 years ago shorly after she had a hysterectomy. She was fine until her surgery. If I remember correctly, I think I suggested she may have LS.

TPT: Has eating gluten-free helped with your lichen sclerosus? I was recently diagnosed with LS as well, despite the fact it is most common in post-menopausal women, and I'm 34! It's awful. I've only had the symptoms since having my baby a year ago. There is very little research on it (of course since it's not a "man" disease or supported by drug companies), but I also found things online suggesting there is a link between LS and celiac disease. Some women have said eating gluten-free is the only thing to suppress their symptoms. I'm desperate for anything to work!

I actually had an endoscopy (with biopsies) 3 years ago, which did not indicate celiac disease, but my GI still ordered the celiac disease panel of bloodwork, which I did today. Even if I don't have celiac disease, I'm going gluten-free in the hopes it will help with the lichen sclerosus.



I was only gluten-free for 2 weeks. I am still in limbo over the whole celiac disease thing. I actually have some allergy testing scheduled for next week. After that, I will work more on diagnosising or ruling out celiac disease.
