A 56-year-old female from Uttar Pradesh, Mrs. V.B. (PIN: 27698) started homeopathic treatment from Life Force in January 2016 for her complaint of Lichen Planus.
She was suffering from this skin condition for the past 2 years. She had lesions on her skin and also in her mouth. The spots were present mainly on her legs, hands, and mouth. She was experiencing a lot of itching on the skin. The itching was very intense all the time. Hyperpigmentation was present on the skin. She was suffering from the burning sensation in the mouth. She was taking conventional medicine for many years but got no relief. She also had Thyroid disorders for which she was taking thyroid supplements.

The hyperpigmentation was still present on the skin, but the spots were not active. The burning in the mouth was less, and she was able to eat normal food now.
