Quick orientation about long-term management of Lichen Planus:

No shortcut: Lichen Planus is a chronic disease, will require a long and planned treatment. There is no shortcut.

Say No to cortisone (steroids): Most commonly used medicines for Lichen Planus in all parts of the world is some or other form of cortisone or steroids, either oral and/or local cream and/or injectable. In our extensive experience, any use of steroids is found to be suppressive, temporary and hence harmful. It makes your disease more difficult to heal. Our suggestion is to avoid steroids in any form.

Cortisone abuse: Please check our write up on the abuse of cortisone (steroids).

Short lasting: Please ask your doctor, who may prescribe you cortisone, if it is going to be a permanent or short-lived solution.

Do not fall into the vicious cycle: It may be noted that since our clinic deals with chronic Lichen Planus, almost all of our patients present to us with a history of steroid application of steroid intake, for many months or years. They learn it the hard way that steroids eventually help little. It is up to you to decide if or not you want to fall into the vicious cycle of frequent use of cortisone.

Homeopathy: Homeopathy offers promising results for all variants of Lichen Planus (Skin, oral, genital forms). Over 3000 cases treated and documented at Life Force is one of the largest ever collection of patients with this disease. We have a deeper insight into the treatment for Lichen Planus.

Let your doctor know: It is likely that your Family Physician may not suggest homeopathic treatment. This could be because of his/her ignorance about homeopathy or may be due to an unavailability of a qualified homeopathic doctor in your area.
