Important note:

The exact treatment is determined only by an "in-depth" evaluation of the individual case. Homeopathy for alopecia provides a comprehensive solution with the correct line of treatment. The medicines described below are commonly indicated in Lichen Planus, only for the purpose of information. The readers are advised not to indulge in any kind of self-medication.
