    Hello my name is Guadalupe, I I’ve had vitiligo for over 35 years, but that’s not my problem, 3 days ago I was diagnosed with lichen planus and as expected the doctor told me there was no cure for my disease, I just read your information and I’m very interested to try treatment, please send me information, treatment costs please.
    The first time I realized I had lichen planus was in November 20015 but the doctor diagnosed me 3 months later, I feel like I’ve lost a lot of time and would like to start as soon as possible
