Lichen Planus Treatment
Lichen Planus Treatment
Lichen planus is a chronic skin condition that is characterized by an itchy rash on the skin or mucous membranes. The rash typically appears as purplish or reddish-purple bumps or patches that may be raised or flat. Lichen planus can affect any part of the body, but it is most commonly found on the wrists, ankles, lower back, and genital area.
The exact cause of lichen planus is not fully understood, but it is thought to be related to an immune system dysfunction. It is not contagious and is not caused by an infection.
Lichen planus can be treated with a variety of medications, including topical corticosteroids, oral medications, and light therapy. The goal of treatment is to reduce the symptoms and prevent the rash from spreading.
To prevent the spread of lichen planus, it is important to practice good hygiene, including washing your hands frequently and avoiding sharing personal items such as towels or clothing. It is also important to avoid scratching the affected area, as this can further irritate the skin and increase the risk of infection.
If you think you may have lichen planus, it is important to see a healthcare provider for proper diagnosis and treatment. While the condition is not typically serious, it can cause discomfort and may lead to scarring if left untreated.

Do you give 100% guarantee?
No doctor can give 100% guarantee that the treatment or surgery would be beneficial for the patient. For that matter, no guarantee is given by any doctor or surgeon that the patient would be "cured".
Anyone considering a cosmetic procedure should ensure they are informed enough to understand the limitations and risks of any procedure. Remember, no procedure is 100% risk free and no surgeon can give a 100% guarantee of the results.
The only assurance which a doctor can give or can be understood to have given by implication is that he is possessed of the requisite skill in that branch of profession which he is practicing and while undertaking the performance of the task entrusted to him he would be exercising his skill with reasonable competence.
Unless the circumstances are exceptional, it is advisable to avoid surgery if you have recently experienced major life events such as moving house, changing job, losing a loved one, the break-up of a relationship or the arrival of children. Undergoing cosmetic surgery results in emotional changes as well as physical ones, so it’s wise to choose a time when there aren’t other stressful events going on in your life.
How many sessions do I require?
The healthier your skin/hair are when starting out, the easier it will take the treatment. The sessions must be spaced to allow adequate healing in between. Skin/Hair that are healthy enough to regenerate fairly quickly will be able to endure more sessions of a treatment in a shorter period of time.
While these aren’t the only factors involved, they are the most common. Don’t be surprised, however, if your doctor mentions another situation that could impact the length and/or number of sessions you may require. Every person is different, and your circumstances will be unique only to YOU.
