Natural Alternative Remedies for Lichen Sclerosus

Naturally Thriving: Ayurveda's Guide to Lichen Planus Sclerosus Relief


Lichen Sclerosus is a chronic skin condition that usually affects the perianal and genital regions. This condition is more common in the post-menopausal women. It results in the development of small, white, shiny, and smooth spots on the affected parts of the skin. The lesions often grow to form bigger plaques, which later become thin or crinkled. It may also weaken the skin structure resulting in easy tears.


Most women also develop bright red, and purple bruises along with severe itching, blisters, and bleeding at the affected site. Patients suffering from these symptoms can follow lichen sclerosus alternative treatment recommended by Ayurveda principles.  [1]


The use of Ayurvedic Indian herbs and following the diet are advisable for the prevention as well as lichen planus and sclerosus natural treatment. [2]


Symptoms of Lichen Sclerosusn and Planus


Lichen sclerosus is not contagious and does not spread from one person to another. It has a tendency to affect multiple parts of the skin. The lesions of lichen planus and lichen sclerosus on the skin of the upper body and arms usually go away without any active treatment.


However, the lesions on the genitals need to be treated with oral and topical medications to prevent worsening or further damage to the skin tissues. A natural treatment of prurigo nodularis using ayurvedic herbs and following an ayurvedic diet can help to control these symptoms and protect the health and functions of the skin.



Ayurveda can offers lichen sclerosus herbal treatment to control worsening of the lesions and restores the natural health of the skin. The treatment also includes the use of herbs and various detoxes.


Some other symptoms patients may experience at the site of lesions include redness, burning, and a wheel formation indicating an allergy-like reaction due to the involvement of the immune system. The general signs caused due to lichen sclerosus and lichen planus include flu-like symptoms such as weakness, fever, body ache, and headache.


Patients who suffer from these symptoms can seek lichen planus natural treatment based on the concepts of Ayurveda Doshas. The treatment is aimed at restoring the normal functions of the immune to avoid the development or worsening of the conditions.


Lichen Planopilaris Natural Treatment



Ayurveda can also offers a vulvar lichen sclerosus treatment using natural Indian herbs that possess medicinal properties, which can help to control inflammation and damage to the skin tissues caused due to these conditions.


The lichen sclerosus diet as recommended by Ayurveda can help patients to derive results. The diet includes foods that support the healthy immune system functions thus inhibiting the symptoms caused due to its hypersensitive response. Using ayurvedic herbs in combination with a balanced diet can help patients to achieve the oral lichen planus treatment naturally.


Lichen Sclerosus Natural Remedies


Here are a few lichen sclerosus natural remedies that can produce a anti-pruritic, anti-inflammatory and immune system regulatory effect, which can help you to obtain relief from the symptoms of these conditions.


Neem (Azadirachta indica): Itching and burning caused due to vulvar dermatitis can be managed effectively by using Neem that produces an anti-pruritic and blood cleansing effect. It can also help to prevent the risk of infections at the affected site by producing antibacterial and antifungal actions. [3]

  • I consulted Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for my teenage son to improve his height. He was 4.11 at 13. I was very worried as we are not tall parents and I thought to do something natural soon before its too late. I took a phone consultation with Dr Saini at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic. Range of dietary, lifestyle changes were suggested and some Ayurvedic medicine was posted to me. I am very happy to say that with in six months, my son has shown a significant improvement in height. His family and friends have all acknowledged the improvement in height. I highly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for natural height improvements.

  • 3+ years ago just before covid hit, I had sudden intolerance to a string of food predominantly gluten, cow's milk, egg and night shade vegetables. Energy was low and brain was foggy. I consulted and tried other treatments but minimal improvement. I was recommended to Drs Saini and Pooja by a friend who came out of her issues after ayurvedic treatments. Without hesitation, i consulted and started my ayurvedic journey 2+ years ago. It was the best decision I made. During those time, I had 2 sessions of panchakarma treatments. 2+ years later, I can now confidently say that I am able to incorporate gluten and cows milk products into my diet without any issue. My energy is back to normal and the other bonus for me is that unnecessary food cravings have diminished. I am very grateful and appreciated Drs Saini & Pooja's dedication and patient throughout my ayurvedic journey...

  • I am with Dr Saini from last 4+ years. I reached to him after my cancer surgery four years ago...then I was in distress and looking for right guidance and support. With Dr Sahni help, I was treated for chronic constipation, lack of sleep and energy and emotional eating recovery...which helped me achieve better health. Many thanks to him for the same and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for similar support.

  • I had an absolute life changing experience with Taking an Ayurvedic approach for coming out of my son’s eczema. We were struggling with eczema and other skin concerns for my 4 year old almost since his birth. Had tried all sorts of creams available in the market but every time the flareups were coming back . It is only until Someone recommended us Dr. Gurnam Saini and we were put on Ayurvedic healing path. In 4-5 months his eczema started going away; some stubborn eczema spots disappeared with no flareups, itchiness . I will highly recommend Ayurvedic holistic healing over western medicines.

  • I am writing this review so that everyone gets to know about the most capable Ayurvedic doctor of Melbourne, Dr. Saini and could reach out to him for almost any condition they might be suffering from. I was suffering from Migraine headache almost everyday but after taking the medicines prescribed by Dr. Saini, my headache almost vanished. These Ayurvedic medicines helped me in controlling my stress magnificently. I hope my review could help others who are suffering from anxiety and stress or any other chronic disorder. Please try the Ayurvedic(herbal) medicines for once as they don't have any side effects. They also have the facility of Ayurvedic massage which can definitely help the hard-working professionals out there. I hope everyone could get this miraculous treatment of Ayurveda.

  • I thoroughly recommend Ayurveda Doctor Gurnam Saini! He is fantastic. I was feeling depressed with low moods and low energy, I'd put on weight and was experiencing hair loss. I saw results with my energy and mood after only a few days of treatment and after three months I have been gradually losing weight and my hair is becoming thicker and fuller. His Ayurveda herbs and supplements definitely do the trick, and his dietary recommendations are pretty easy to implement into your lifestyle. If you're feeling like your overall health and well-being could be better I recommend giving this a try.

  • My experience with herbal Ayurveda was positive. I found a tremendous amount of healing with this therapy after suffering from bronchitis and arthritic pain for years. The herbal massage was the best thing I ever did. I stopped my medication, the bronchitis healed and my arthritis improved remarkably. I highly recommend it and I look forward to more treatments.

  • My four year old picked up a nasty viral cough every six-eight weeks lasting 2+ weeks each time. This has gone on FOR YEARS. Too many sleepless nights to count. She’s now on her third month of Ayurved treatment, and so far she hasn’t picked up so much as a runny nose. She’s still attending the same daycare, same level of exposure. Only now her immune system is strong enough to cope. We can’t thank you enough Dr. Gurnam.

  • I saw Dr Saini in July 2019 for “acid reflux” after suffering of months. I tried different medicines but didn’t work. There was a time I started believing that there was no permanent cure to this disease. Dr Saini is an authentic Ayurvedic doctor. He can do miracles for you. I honestly believe he’s a blessing for the city of Melbourne otherwise it would have been very hard to physically see an Ayurvedic doctor like him. My heart burn got worst with the time & became just unbearable. I couldn’t eat anything or sleep at all. Finally, I found him via google and peoples reviews convinced me to give him a call. He’s an angel & listens everything. He gave me a three month’s plan which I completed happily. But unbelievably my acid reflux reduced 80% within three days & completely gone in five days & it never came back since then. I’m so happy & enjoying my life like I used to. God bless Dr Saini & God bless those who wrote reviews which convinced me to give him a call first time.

With continued treatment and lifestyle changes I am looking forward to: * normal blood pressure without medication, * weight loss without strict diets, * cough gone!
