63 years old New Jersey resident, Mrs. J. L. D. (Patient Identification Number - 6763) from New Jersey, United States, availed our online treatment for Lichen Planus.
She started with Dr. Shah’s treatment on 12th April 2005. She had noticed the first spot of Lichen Planus a year ago on her left leg. She had visited her local family physician who had diagnosed it as scabies. She took his treatment for a couple of months, but the spots kept on increasing. When it had extensively spread all over the body, she visited a skin specialist. After a skin biopsy, it was diagnosed as Lichen Planus. It was spreading gradually. The size was varied and it almost covered the whole limbs. They were itchy and occasionally would feel a tingle. The spots were dark violaceous in appearance. There would be a burning sensation in these spots. She was supervising the renovation work last year when the skin complaints started. She was stressed because of this complaint.
Her appetite was average. She preferred vegetables and fish more than pasta and meat. She did not like Chinese food. Her thirst and sweat were normal.

The son was single and 32 years old. Her daughter was 36 years old. Her elder sister resided a mile away from her and was physically disabled. The patient had taken care of her sister all these years. She had met with an accident a few months back and fractured her ankle.
