Lichen planus is an inflammatory disease that affects the skin and the oral mucosa, and presents itself in the form of papules (flat spots) or rashes. The exact cause of Lichen Planus is not very clearly understood but some triggers are found and these include stress, food allergens, environmental allergens and some drugs (NSAID’s, pencillamine, tetracycline, captopril. sulfonamides etc). Treatment is available only on prescription and consists mainly of steroids, retinoids, hydroquinone and phototherapy.
Hope it helps. Take care and do keep us posted on how you are doing.
