Borax for Lichen Sclersus and osteoarthritis
After reading many website on Borax I found Dr. Walter Last's website on 'The Borax Conspiracy' I followed his instructions to rid my LS condition of 3 years. I used 1/8 tsp Borax to 1 litre of distilled water for 10 days with a one day break after 5 days; then I mixed 1 heaping tsp Borax to 1 liter of water and took 1-2 tsp daily added to an additional glass of water. Also take 600-750mg Magnesium Citrate.
After 4 days of beginning this treatment, I noticed my energy increased and my knees, which have 'osteoarthritis', stopped aching. After 10 days, my LS inflammation began to subside, and the itching subdued greatly. For moisture I began to apply a combined solution made of 2 tbsp Castor Oil with a 5-6 drops of Lavendar Essential Oil and 3-4 drops of Lemon Grass Essential Oil and applied regularly on my labia/vulva area.
One month later, I feel much better and the healing is definitely happening! What a relief! I have stopped taking the 'steroids' prescribed by my Dermatologist, as it had only superficially contained the problem and the redness and itching hadn't ever stopped for long. I have never had a yeast problem ever before in my life, I'm a vegetarian since my teens, and 65 years old now. (PS. I do have a hypo thyroid condition since mid 30yrs, which I now take 5-6 drops of Nascent Iodine a day with '50mg Selenium', and discontinued taking my 'thyroxine' medication.)
I also take Nordic probiotics & Chromium; Vitamin D3 and Omega 3 to help my gut. I stopped drinking so much coffee and drink lots of water, modified glutens to very small amounts and walking more frequently.
Olive Oil + Borax = LS symptoms gone. Seriously. I can't remember where I first read about using that combination, but it works. Just plain olive oil (not EVOO) and borax applied to the vulva 2-3 x per day and every symptom is gone. And it worked fast. I continue to use the same remedy to avoid any return/flare-up, and I'm doing really well. Back to normal and feeling so grateful.

I've suffered from Lichen Sclerosis for years! Nothing helped and I had to endure colposcopies every year to make sure I didn't have cancer. Ouch! I found a group that recommended Borax Baths. Initially, I thought that was an insane idea. I did my research on Boron and decided to try it. Four years later, and I'm still taking my Borax baths on a regular basis. It is the only thing that calms my itching, burning and pain. My skin is healthy and soft, my overall physical pain is relieved and I rarely catch colds or viruses. (I've even managed to avoid the coronavirus— not that I'm suggesting that it's a preventative measure). My gynaecologist thinks I'm crazy for bathing in “detergents” but she's all wrong. Crazy like a fox.lol
Hello, I developed Lichen Sclerosus after a bad allergic reaction to latex. After trying the baking soda/acv/castor oil and getting some but not complete relief I tried borax in water, taken internally 2 times a day. It was completely gone within a week.
The dose I used was 1/8 tsp in a large glass of water and followed by another glass of water to ensure it was well diluted. I have been on this solution for almost 2 weeks and have had no further symptoms. I hope others suffering from this ailment will research borax cures.
Good luck all!
Hi, I have been dealing with Lichen sclerosis since 2015. after trying many things as it continued to get worse and having things fuse from it, I went before the Lord and asked what it is and to please heal me. I was told it was parasitic. I then ordered turpentine, but I could only do that once. The itching was so intense that I wasn't able to sleep.
I came to this site and started reading about borax and then started doing it. I was still having itching at night, and I remembered black walnut was good for fungus and ringworms etc. I had bought some with wormwood and cloves in it for our fur baby, so I started putting it directly on the area after cleansing with borax. The itching stopped.
After two and a half months, the scales are coming off and it is helping with the fusing of skin. If in the fungus family or parasitic family which a fungus is a parasite the black walnut and borax is killing it.
Every day it is improving more and more. Lichen Sclerosis looks so much like tinea versicolor. I use the black walnut in the morning and at night. I rinse a couple of times a day with borax water and then I also mix black walnut with castor oil to help it stay in place. I take 1/8 of borax in a quart of water a day. I am a very thankful child of my Father. Praying this helps many.
A few months ago I researched LS on this site and found many successes with Boron tablets 3mg. I started that process and feel it has been very successful at eliminating my LS as well as toe fungus. What happened to all of those posts?
EC: The posts are still there but under borax, not boron.
lichen sclerosis relief with castor oil
thanks so much for these posts. My gynecologist insisted that I would need to use clobetesol twice a week for the REST of my LIFE!! Tried that for over a year, but still had flare-ups. And who wants to use steroids forever? -- I have started using castor oil twice daily, with occasional aloe vera for irritation or lavender oil for itch, and coconut oil once during the day for extra moisturizing. Symptoms calmed down quickly, and No symptoms for 1 week now.
Wonder if people are using the castor oil even when symptom-free as a preventative? Or just when needed. Would be helpful to know.
I notice that lots of people ask for follow-ups, to see if these remedies work long term -- so I will post again. Here's hoping...
I have been using organic castor oil on myself for a week for LS. It has softened the rough patches of skin. Also, it tends to soothe the irritation. My Gyno said 2 days ago that it hasn't disappeared, but it is not getting worse. So, I figure that is a step in the right direction.+.
Castor oil is the best remedy for taking away my LS itching. I apply in the morning when I am itchy ..... and it is gone all day long excellent remedy and works for me ..
I use Castor Oil applied to the area for my L.S. and the itching goes away immediately.
The Castor Oil application has not worked very well for me....still itching and pain with heat. I am looking for a cure but have not found any real help yet. I refuse to see a Dr or Ob/Gyn for assistance as I know what they will give me. I am looking for natural assistance. I am thinking about trying Hemp flower oil. I would make my own naturally.
You must use castor oil....it cured my LS.....have no more symptoms. It's been over 2 years now. No more pain, no tearing.. Sex is great...........please just use castor oil.
I am 55 and have had L.S. for one year. I am a naturopath so I eat super healthy and have a very healthy lifestyle. Cortisone creams helped a little, but it still never went away completely. I tried Lisepten by Clover leaf farm, which didn't work. I tried Emuaid, which soothed the itching but didn't heal. I have been following the extremely strict Candida diet for 5 + months, no sugar, no alcohol, no yeast, taking supplements to kill any yeast as well as a probiotic, with no results!
And now finally yesterday I tried this castor oil and lemon grass essential oil and lavender essential oil and so far so good. One small white patch that has been chronic is just about gone.
I am hopeful, I will keep you posted.
EC: Essential oils should always be diluted when used topically. Lemongrass can burn delicate tissue if it is not diluted sufficiently.

I was diagnosed with LS at the age of 27 by a dermatologist specialist. I am now 48. I am not sure what caused it as I have had no trauma that would warrant it that I can think of other than an episiotomy at age 18 when my daughter was born. I have always been able to keep it under control with steroid creams clobetasol and OTC 1% cortisone ointment. Been out of clobetasol for 4 years and OTS ointment has not really been helping. In the last 9 months my skin has turned more white and some tearing with sex and itching and burning with my monthly menstrual cycle.
I have been doing so much research on how to heal myself. I tried emu oil with little results, coconut oil mixed with lavender and lemongrass with pretty good results but last week I think I found the best thing ever. I researched and starting using a solution of organic castor oil (4tbsp mixed with 2 drops lavender oil and 1 drop lemongrass oil) I have used it for a little over a week now with wonderful results. It gives instant relief of itching and burning, my tears have healed and my skin is finally starting to turn back pink again. Castor oil is very thick and odorless so it stays with my skin well throughout the day while I am at work or in bed asleep at night.
Sex was great with no tearing or itching burning afterward. I will continue to use this and I hope it helps anyone who reads this suffering with this horrible affliction.
Castor oil, lavender oil and lemon grass oil mixture have given me incredible relief from pain and itching. I'm Almost feeling normal at times. Also, it looks much better only after 2 days of use. Bowel movements are much less painful as well. Before I tried this wonderful oil mixture, I had tried Butt Paste with 40% zinc oxide which helped with itching and pain to a certain extent. Applying several times night and day just to get by. Coconut oil is very soothing and felt nice but didn't help the itch at all. Please try the castor oil!
