Lichen sclerosus is an autoimmune disease. It does not have a cure. The best way to manage the disease is to ease its discomfort symptoms.
NeuEve is not a drug, so it cannot claim that it can treat a disease. But it may ease discomfort. When your discomfort is reduced to near zero, you may not feel that you have a disease. This may be the next best thing to a cure.
Since the start of NeuEve 10 years ago, hundreds of women suffering from lichen sclerosus have purchased NeuEve suppositories and balm cream repeatedly and reported excellent relief. This suggests that NeuEve can help ease symptoms of lichen sclerosus.
How to choose the right products?
To ease symptoms of lichen sclerosus, you can try the following products:
- If you are not sexually active, you can try NeuEve balm cream: https://www.neueve.com/cream
- If painful sex is an issue, you can try the combination of the following:
a) NeuEve Balm Cream: https://www.neueve.com/cream.
b) NeuEve Silk (>45 or postmenopausal): https://www.neueve.com/silk, or Silver (<45 or premenopausal) https://www.neueve.com/silver
c) Optional. If you have used the above 2 products for 1 month and your painful sex is not relieved, you may try adding dilators: https://www.neueve.com/dilators

Tips about using dilators:
1) Avoid overstretching. It is understandable that one may wish to move up the sizes quickly to get a more rapid recovery. However, this can be counterproductive. The recovery of vaginal atrophy is a slow process. Moving up the dilator sizes too quickly or skipping sizes can cause overstretching, which in turn can tear the atrophied tissue to cause injuries. Please do not skip the sizes and try the largest dilator first. Please be patient and do the exercise with a stepwise increment to avoid possible injuries due to overstretching. Please give one size dilator at least 3-4 weeks to allow tissue to catch up the growth before moving up to the next size.
2) Preventing UTI. Physically, dilation exercise is like sexual intercourse. The penetration movement can mobilize bacteria normally on the skin into the bladder to cause UTI. You will need to pee immediately after each exercise to prevent UTI. Urination can flush out any bacteria that entered the bladder during the dilation exercise. Therefore, drinking a lot of water before exercise helps build up the urinating flushing pressure and prevent UTI.
How it works?
Even though the exact cause of lichen sclerosus is unknown, a stubborn non-healing skin disease may be related to one or two factors:
Therefore, we formulate NeuEve to deliver relevant nutrients and anti-inflammatory natural substances.
Apparently, this combination works well for lichen sclerosus. Many customers with lichen sclerosus have used NeuEve and reported relief.
In addition to lichen sclerosus, women with other skin disorders, like vaginal dryness, atrophy, painful intimacy (dyspareunia), chronic UTIs, eczema, vulvodynia, vaginismus, posterior fourchette fissures, etc., have all reported great relief after using NeuEve.
Customer review of NeuEve on lichen sclerosus/planus relief
This cream has a pleasant scent, and it has given me so much relief from **lichen sclerosis**. Before using this product, my skin was so thin and delicate, let alone itchy, that I would bleed profusely during normal oral sex.
Excellent Cream so far for Lichen Sclerosus!!!!
This is a miracle cream I have **lichen sclerosus** and have had it since the day I was born. I have tired just about everything out on the market and everything the doctor tells me to use that should help and nothing has helped. I have been using the cream now for about one month and I have got relief for the first time in my life. The itching has always been my biggest problem and now I have relief from that. I can't use the suppositories so I have been just using the cream and it is working. Thanks
What a difference!
Honestly, I’m not usually a person who writes reviews for things, but it was the reviews on this site that got me to purchase this in the first place. I am 55 years old and FINALLY am in menopause as of last November. The last few years I have been dealing with vaginal dryness and tearing. I was diagnosed with **Lichen Sclerosus** and my doctor prescribed a small dose of estrogen to help with the dryness. That has not helped at all and even though I made sure to lubricate before intimacy, it was still very painful. I honestly thought my sexual days were over. But how? I’m too young! My husband has been so patient and understanding but I wasn’t going to accept that this was the end of the line for me. I was willing to try anything but nothing was working. My doctor suggested coconut oil but it’s so messy! I started searching the internet and somehow found NueEve. What the heck... I’m willing to try anything at this point. It has been fantastic! I noticed a difference right away but was still a little reluctant to put it to the test. I waited until around the 5th dose and absolutely NO PAIN! Even my husband said he noticed the difference and the fact that I didn’t flinch from pain. They do suggest taking fish oil and calcium pills too and I am more than happy to do that if I get the results like I have! So after one month I have renewed for a recurring order. I would highly recommend to anyone dealing with vaginal dryness and **Lichen Sclerosus**. Thank you for such a great product!
I was diagnosed over 10 yrs ago with LS. I experience pain 24/7. Having tried other products, I highly recommend NeuEve products. I started with the cream and the silk but I have not tried the silver yet. I noticed relief from the burning and itching in less than 24 hours. I also use the vaginal magnetic dilators. I am so thankful I found this product. Thank you, thank you.
I have been dealing with LS for over 10 years So I experience pain 24/7. Started using the NeuEve cream along with the silk suppositories as directed and I noticed relief in less than 24 hours. I have tried other products over the years but none have given me relief from the pain like Thank you for a great product. I highly recommend NeuEve.
Silk suppository and cream
I am amazed at how quickly my severe **lichen sclerosis** was reversed. I was so severe that my OB/GYN was able to see through my vaginal tissue into my bladder! I had extremely painful intercourse with bleeding but after 3 months of treatment I have plump tissue like a young girl again! Thank you.
At last - comfort!
Around the age of 70 I began having severe burning, which was misinterpreted to be UTI symptoms by my doctor, in spite of my explaining that the burning was external, not during voiding. Antibiotics didn’t help - the discomfort was always there, periodically getting worse. I had a drawer full of remedies that I tried. Either they just didn’t help or else they caused further unbearable burning. While doing desperate online searches, I found Neu Eve. No irritation and relief by the next morning. Finally a urogynecologist 50 miles from me diagnosed **lichen planus** the first time she examined me. (**not lichen sclerosis**.) I had three laser treatments, which helped the lesions that she found. I still had dryness though, and she advised that I should continue Neu Eve. If I am out before the next shipment arrives, I can tell that I missed it. I will never be without Neu Eve, **lichen planus** is not curable and it flares up without Neu Eve.
LONG REVIEW....NeuEve BV Clearing Kit
I have had itching and resulting burning from the constant itching, which are symptoms of BV and vaginal atrophy, I also had a horrible darkening of my vagina and painful intercourse. I also have symptoms and signs of **Lichen Sclerosus**. I ordered the product to see whether I could get rid of this horrible nightmare of a year and half of itching. I waited until I completed the 3 suppositories before writing a review so that I could give an honest assessment of how this product worked for me.
I completed the full BV kit, using one suppository every 3-5 days (with a break between for my menses). On the first night due to the damage from scratching it burn and was irritated for about a minute or so. On the outside areas that burned I wiped with an unscented, lint free wipe. After the sensation subsided I was so overjoyed! The itching minimized and the product felt like it was “working” and I was able to fall asleep without scratching myself raw, my vagina also felt different, as if blood was circulating around the area and plumping it up.
After my menses, I used the 2nd suppository. There was no burning and the itching was still progressively getting less and less (this was far better results than the medications that I was prescribed that didn't do anything but burned constantly with no relief from the burning or itching). I used the last suppository and there was no burning except in areas where I had irritated (and areas where the LS bumps were). But even in those areas the bumps were not as pronounced or itchy or painful as before.
After using the 2nd suppository, I realized that my prayers for relief were answered and I immediately ordered another BV kit AND the NeuEve Assorted Suppository Kit and the NeuEve cream. My only regret (in my haste to try anything that may have worked for me), I didn't order the NeuEve vulvar itching Cream in my first order, since I still had itching around my vulvar and believed that may have helped me also to completely stop the constant itching whiles using the suppositories.
What I didn't like about the product (hence 4 stars, wished you could do 1/2 stars...the product is really 4.5/5) was the suppositories were breaking up somewhat when taking them out of the package and the gritty discharge (which burned certain areas, once I wiped this gritty substance, the burning stopped).
My results are very good and I would definitely use and recommend this product (in spite of my dislikes). I can report that my vagina began lubricating itself after the 3rd and final suppository, my vagina’s color is lightening somewhat and most importantly…THE ITCHING IS ALMOST GONE!! I believe the vulvar cream is the only thing that was missing in my first try of the product, so I recommend that you get the cream along with the formula.
If you are suffering and the prescribed BV meds are not working…please, please give the NeuEve formulas a try. I am not a doctor, but if you have LS, you should also try these products, as they seem to be helping with this issue also. I will be ordering NeuEve to keep on hand. Thank you for such a wonderful product that is working beautifully for me.
