Mr. J. V. a business analyst residing in Schaumburg, Illinois, US availed our online treatment for Lichen Planus (Patient Identification Number - 13930). He had researched over the internet and came across Dr. Shah’s website. He filled in the questionnaire online on 3rd December 2007. He was 36 years, well-built man.
He noticed the first spot of Lichen Planus less than a year ago on his abdomen. It started spreading on the forearms, back, and neck. He had visited a skin specialist who had advised a biopsy. The skin biopsy confirmed it as Lichen Planus. There was no itching or burning in the spots. He described it as small, scattered reddish brown eruptions. Occasionally they would look red as if inflamed. Most of them were dark brownish in appearance, size of mustard seed. He had not taken any medication so far.
He precisely mentioned stress as being the triggering factor. He also had allergies to latex, pollen, animal hair, peanuts etc.
He would feel embarrassed as they were visible on his forearms and neck.

He stayed in the US with his wife, children, and parents.
He had a habit of taking painkillers for each and every type of body pain. He had frequent body pains due to stress compelling him to take painkillers.
His case details were studied by Dr. Shah and he was prescribed a research-based medicine for 4 months.
