    90% Recovery From Chronic Lichen Planus Found With Homeopathy

    Lichen Planus: Lichen planus is an inflammatory condition of the skin and mucus membranes. Lichen planus occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks cells of the skin or mucous membranes.
    On the skin, lichen planus appears as purplish, itchy, and flat-topped bumps. On mucous membranes, such as in the mouth, it forms lacy, white patches, sometimes, even painful sores.
    A 67-year-old female patient, Mrs. S. M. (PIN: 34633) came to Life Force with the complaints of lichen Planus on 4th December 2017.
    She was suffering from Lichen Planus for 2.5 years and had eruptions on her scalp, back, waist, hands, in the mouth, and on the genitals too. She had small red eruptions along with itching and burning. Her skin was dry. And, she was experiencing difficulty in eating and drinking. Her oral eruption would get aggravated with slight touch and after eating spicy food. 
    She was applying steroid cream, which she was asked to stop.
    She was a non-vegetarian and liked to eat spicy food. She had an excessive thirst.
    By nature, she was irritable, used to get angry easily, and a perfectionist.
    After a detailed case analysis, she was prescribed research-based medicines for lichen planus.
    On the first follow-up on 16th January 2018, her eruptions on genitals had increased while other eruptions were as it is. The rise in eruptions was due to steroid withdrawal, which was explained to the patient when she first visited us.
    On 26th April 2018, she said that she is experiencing a 20% improvement in relief in her skin condition. All her eruptions had decreased, but some new eruptions were developing on her hands. 
    In June 2018, she said that she was experiencing a 40% improvement in relief in lichen planus. Her eruptions had reduced, and itching and burning had also reduced.
    On 11th September 2018, there was a 60% improvement in relief. But, eruptions in her oral cavity and on the genitals would get aggravated sometimes. 
    On 3rd December 2018, she informed that there was a 70% improvement in her recovery from the skin condition. Her relief in all the symptoms was getting better.
    On 10th January 2019, there was a sudden aggravation in her eruptions of the oral cavity and genitals. Rest eruptions on her body were stable. She was experiencing a great burning sensation in her genitals and oral cavity. 
    On 9th February 2019, she said that all her eruptions had subsided, except for the eruptions on the genitals. 
    On 6th June 2019, she reported 80% relief in all her symptoms, but her eruption in the oral cavity and on the genital eruptions would increase on & off.
    On 7th November 2019, she reported that eruptions on her body had almost vanished, and there is burning on her genitals and in the oral cavity. 
    On 6th April 2020, she said that there was almost 90% improvement in relief in all her symptoms. The eruption in her oral cavity and on the genital had also reduced. 
    On 25th July 2020, the patient said that she had a blister on the upper lip which was later diagnosed as a Herpes infection. 
    On 17th November 2020, the patient said that the improvement is stable. No lesions had developed elsewhere on her body. Only in her mouth, some lesions left. 
    The patient is very happy with the treatment she is receiving at Life Force and is continuing treatment for a complete recovery.

    This case illustrates that homeopathy can treat autoimmune diseases like Lichen Planus very effectively. Lichen Planus which does not have any cure can be treated to a great extent with the help of proper homeopathic medicines safely without any side-effects.
