What is Lichen Planus?

Lichen Planus, an obstinate skin disorder has baffled not only the patients but also the practitioners equally. The cases of Lichen Planus have been observed all over the world, irrespective of the race, skin color and culture. The medical field today finds little help for this chronic disease. Fortunately, homeopathy, the fast-growing alternative medicine has a definite, promising treatment for Lichen Planus.

Lichen Planus is commonly misspelled as lichen planu, liche planus, licchen planus, liken planus. Lichen Planus is called as Daad in Hindi and Gajkarna in Marathi.

It is a long-standing (chronic), recurring, non-allergic, non-infectious, non-contagious disease of the skin, of which the exact cause is not yet fully understood.

It can affect the skin, oral mucosa, tongue, scalp, genitals, and nails. However, it is less likely that it affects all the areas as stated, at the same time. It has a tendency to relapse after some months or years. Females are more frequently affected as compared to the male counterpart, however, uncommon to find it in children. Over 1.9% of the total population is affected by Lichen Planus.

Please examine this photo to check the typical skin lesions of Lichen Planus. The photos can be clicked to enlarge to have a better view.

Signs and symptoms:

lichen planus on legs The typical appearance of the Lichen Planus eruption is round or irregular shape, raised slightly above the skin level, brown or pinkish or black in color.

Commonly Affected Parts in Lichen Planus

Lichen Planus largely affects the skin. It may also affect mouth (gums, tongue, palate) (oral Lichen Planus), the scalp, nails, or the genitals (glans, penis). It could affect one or more of the said body parts. It is not a rule that every patient with Lichen Planus will have all the said areas affected. In males, it could affect the glans of the penis and in females the vulva or vagina. It can

be said that more areas affected, more difficult to treat. Also, experience says that the oral or genital Lichen Planus is more difficult to treat as compared to that on the skin. Also, Lichen planus affecting the scalp when leads to scarring, may lead to permanent hair loss; which is difficult to treat.

Lichen Planus and Hepatitis:

Some of the latest studies have shown a co-association of Lichen Planus with a rare variety of Hepatitis-C. It may be noted that the exact connection and causative link has not been established between the two entities. It may be noted that patients with Hepatitis C have some proneness to develop Lichen Planus; the reverse is not true.

The typical textbook description goes :

Flat-topped shiny polygonal eruptions. Small in size, thickened eruptions, rough and/or oily to touch, dirty look at times. You may find spots either in groups, a few or numerous in number and very often bilateral symmetrical (on both the side of the body, say legs).

lichen planus skin picture Clinically, a peculiar appearance classically described as Wickham's striae is considered diagnostic of Lichen Planus. 
(Please see the picture above)

Under the microscope: It is of less importance to the patients to know how Lichen Planus tissues look when seen under the microscope. Following is the microscopic (histopathological) view of it.

Lichen planus skin under microscope At times, one also observes the Lichen Planus eruptions appearing along the line of a scratch mark, called Koebner's phenomenon. It has an affinity for the genitals are involved. In males, the glans; while in females the vulva may be affected.

The nails, when affected, tend to become deformed. In short, Lichen Planus affecting the skin, mouth (Oral Lichen Planus) and vaginal LP are some of the most common variants. When the oral mucosa or the genitals are affected, this condition is often neglected, reported late or incorrectly diagnosed. Lichen Planus affecting the food pipe (esophagus) is not a commonly encountered condition. However, some cases have been reported at some institutes.

All variants of Lichen Planus respond very well to homeopathic treatment. It can be said with confidence that Lichen Planus is curable using homeopathy. Homeopathy offers excellent results in Lichen Planus of the skin, mouth, and genitals; in this order.

Lichen Planus after stretch marks:

Lichen planus koebner phenomenon One of the recent cases documented at Life Force has displayed the occurrence of Lichen Planus after stretch marks (striae) on losing weight. This is called Koebner phenomenon. The Koebner phenomenon denotes development of Lichen planus after trauma to the skin.
