Homeopathy Treatment for Lichen Planus
Linchen Planus is a chronic, recurrent rash of unknown cause and no established cure. It is due to the inflammation of the skin and the mucus membranes. Usually it affects adults and any part of the body. But, it is found mostly on wrists, ankles, oral and genital tissues. In appearance it is small, flat topped, many sided bumps clustered into rough, scaly plaques on the skin. It is quite itchy and may spontaneously resolve.

Topical treatment and oral histamines can help. For oral lesions topical steroids (cortisone) in special oral preparation is available. However, these steroids have harmful effects when used on the long run. Homeopathy offers much better treatments for Linchen Planus in the form of Antim crud., Iris., nuxvomica, and others are given to act on the immune system and provide relief. However, the dosages are given only after a thorough evaluation by a specialist homeopath.
