dermatosis: general term for a skin condition
Lichen sclerosus, a chronic skin malady of unknown cause, with lesions affecting primarily the genital areas, is most often a scourge of women, but men sometimes become sufferers.

Lifelong use of potent steroid creams has been shown to reduce the chances of malignant transformation.
