Advice & Tips: after some years of using this drug for pain, my doctor wanted to add for extra medicine for stomach problems prevention, so I decided to stop. around the same time I started voltaren/diclofenac I developed skin issues, lichen scleroses on penis. now after I stopped diclofenac this is not longer a issue. therefor I'll have to assume it was only a side effect, but no doctor found the combination of voltaren and my development of skin issues on penis to be connected. shame on them, I lost my sex life due to incompetence from the staff of doctors.
