Lichen Planus specialists

You will more than likely require a vulvar specialist who is experienced in vulvar disease, vulvoscopy and the new treatments of lichen planus, in order to effectively manage your symptoms. 

It is advisable to seek out a specialist if you think you may have lichen planus. The National Vulvodynia Association (www.nva.org) has a comprehensive data base of providers who treat vulvar conditions including lichen planus and lichen sclerosus. It provides web address and additional information concerning specialty, type of practice and number of cases seen on a monthly basis. It can be searched by geographical area as well.

The International Society for the Study of Vulvovaginal Disease (www.issvd.org) may also be an excellent resource for up to date information, research and providers who specialize in vulvovaginal disorders.

You may also need an internist or medical expert in infectious disease or liver conditions if you are also affected by Hepatitis C. An allergist may also be consulted if it is felt that the lichen planus was triggered by an allergy.

If you are suffering from sexual complaints associated or caused by the lichen planus, including painful intercourse or painful sex, then good therapist or counselor, who specializes in sexual pain may be located at the International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health (www.isswsh.org) or American Association of Sexual Educators, Counselors and Therapists (www.aasect.org).  The International Society for Sexual Medicine (www.issm.info) and the European Society for Sexual Medicine (www.essm.org) are also excellent resources.
