Is sitting causing you discomfort? Have you heard of Lichen Sclerosus?
What is Lichen Sclerosus?
NHS online defines Lichen Sclerosus as "... a skin condition that causes itchy white patches on the genitals or other parts of the body. There's no cure, but treatment can help relieve the symptoms."
The white patches that appear and can often tear or bleed easily making sitting uncomfortable especially for women.
Lichen Sclerosus Cushion.
We have great feedback on one of our pressure cushions for this problem. The cushion is profiled for pressure relief and comes with a specialist cut out.
We recently had a lovely email from a customer who suffers with this condition she stated:
"I have Lichen Sclerosus. I’m not sure if you know of this condition. It’s a chronic dermatological condition which unfortunately affects the vulva area in women. It is much more common than people think, as lots of women are un-diagnosed. It can be a very painful condition and sitting down is very uncomfortable for many of us. I am a member of a forum online and we have all tried so many different cushions to try to be able to sit down, and this is the first one that has made a difference for me. I used it on a car journey this weekend with no discomfort at all, which is wonderful. I just happened to find out about your website from a vulvodynia forum I was looking at online (as that is another condition where it is painful to sit).
