Lichen Nitidus is a rare skin condition that usually appears as tiny, skin-colored, glistening bumps on the surface of the skin. Lichen Nitidus is a result of abnormal inflammatory activity in the cells of the skin. While Lichen Nitidus can affect anyone, but it usually develops in children and young adults. Lichen Nitidus rarely causes discomfort and normally clears up on its own, but the most common signs of Lichen Nitidus include itching, fever, and oozing from a rash, among others.
HOW IS LICHEN NITIDUS DIAGNOSED?
Your dermatology specialist may view your skin bumps under magnifying glass and diagnose the condition. A skin biopsy may sometimes be suggested to confirm the condition.
HOW IS LICHEN NITIDUS TREATED?
Usually no treatment is required, as Lichen Nitidus does not usually cause any symptoms and resolves within 12 months in two-thirds of cases. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation can persist for months or in some cases, for years. In severe cases, systemic treatments may be considered, including:
• Retinoids – acitretin
• Astemizole (antihistamine, a selective H1 antagonist)
• Isoniazid (antibiotic often used to treat tuberculosis)
• Antihistamines act against a protein called histamine that is involved in inflammatory activity An oral or topical antihistamine may relieve itching associated with Lichen Nitidus.
• Phototherapy, a type of light therapy, may help clear up Lichen Nitidus
