Lichen Planus can affect skin, mouth, genitals, nails and scalp.

The duration of treatment may depend on the extent of the disease. Lichen Planus only on the skin is easier to treat than one on skin + mouth + genitals.

At Life Force, we have treated even Oral Surgeon having Oral Lichen Planus.

Doctors of many specialties have been treated at Life Force for various diseases

It is rare that Lichen Planus may turn into Cancer.

Patients with Oral Lichen Planus may be suggested biopsy if the lesions are resistant to treat.

If you suppress Lichen Planus by cortisone, you are likely to have more severe Lichen Planus.

It can spread from skin to mouth and genitals. This observation is based on Dr Shah’s extensive experience
