A 60-Year-Old Oral Lichen Planus Patient Found Immense Relief With Homeopathy

What is Lichen Planus?

Lichen Planus is an inflammatory condition of the skin and mucus membrane. It results when the immune system mistakenly attacks the skin or mucus membrane resulting in red purplish, inflamed, and fluid-filled lesions on the skin and mucous membrane, white lacy lesions, or, sometimes, related painful sores.

There are different types of Lichen Planus:

- Cutaneous Lichen Planus  affects the skin.

- Oral Lichen Planus  affects the oral cavity.

- Vulval/Penile Lichen Planus  affects the genital area.

- Lichen Planopilaris affects the scalp.

- Nail Lichen Planus.

- Lichen Planus Pigmentosa affects the skin but only pigmentation is there without inflammation.
