Unhappy - Lichen Sclerosus AND Genital Herpes Lichen Sclerosus AND Genital Herpes

Hello! I was diagnosed 13 yrs ago with LS (by punch biopsy). I used steroids treatment for a few months and then stopped. Over the years I have had times when it was itchy and painful but I just dealt with it. Then last year it was unbearable so I went to the GYN only to learn I had Herpes. Now I wonder if that could have been the problem over the years and I didn't know. I divorced about 11 years ago and remarried about 9 years ago.

Now for about the past week I have been having symptoms of the LS worsening, and I wonder how often I should be having biopsies done to be sure I don't get cancer.

I am the worst at seeing my GYN regularly - and now I regret it. I haven't had someone to monitor my LS regularly and the thought of that painful biopsy freaks me out!!

Does anyone else have BOTH conditions, by chance?

Thanks!
