Good evening. Lichen planus is quite an itchy and stubborn. Topical corticosteroids are the 1st choice especially when lesions are few in number. If still actively persistent or worsening, stronger creams/ointments may be tried along with tablets/capsules to control the disease activity. Even if lichen planus is controlled, it tends to leave behind marks which are very persistent and difficult to treat.

Lichen planus usually goes away on its own. If symptoms are bothersome, topical creams and oral antihistamines may help.

1)replacement of amalgam restorations 2)withdrawal of the drug 3)oral lichen lesions in chronic in graft versus host disease are usually managed with local corticosteroids or other drugs such as tacrolimus. 4)as in olp the question arises whether one or all types of oral lichenoid lesions are to be considered a potentially malignant disorder in the absence of known etiological factors, the taking of a biopsy should be considered, particularly in case of a non-reticular lesion, in order to exclude the possibility of epithelial dysplasia or even carcinoma in situ or invasive squamous cell carcinoma.

Hi, There is definitely a cure in Ayurveda for it. We have successfully treated several such cases. It is an intense therapy course of panchakarma, followed by medication for 2 to 3 months.

Lichen planus is a cell-mediated immune response of unknown origin, a self-limited disease that usually resolves within 8-12 months. Treamtment depends on the severity of the disease. Apply moisturizer regularly and try refrain yourself from touching it as it increases with trauma.

It can be treated by homoeopathic remedies. But you will not be able to get treatment without consulting. As it lasts for long time and you will need to regularly consult. You can consult me at Lybrate.

Hi Friend, Thanks for reaching out here for help. What you have been doing is the treatment for the symptoms and not for the root cause. So it will repeat until you treat the source. Skin related problem are symptom of excess heat in the body, digestion issues or stress in the mind. You need to first assess this in details to adopt a suitable treatment plan. In Ayurveda term, such symptoms are triggered by excess Pitta or imbalanced fire energy in body. Feel free to reach out to me online for further evaluation of your symptoms and recommend alternative solution in Ayurveda.
