Hello,
In lichen planus, topical corticosteroid creams may be of help. In more severe cases, oral medications like steroids and immunosuppressive medicines or therapy with ultraviolet light may be useful. You can talk to your dermatologist about steroids and ultraviolet therapy.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
