Lichen Planus – Overview

Lichen planus is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease that affects almost 0.5 to 2% of the world population. It presents with dark, raised, flat-topped lesions, mostly affecting the skin, but can also involve the scalp, nails, oral cavity and genitals in many cases.

Lichen planus is neither infectious nor contagious in nature. Apart from being chronic, the disease has periods of remissions (when the symptoms disappear or reduce in intensity) and relapses (when the disease symptoms increase in intensity).

The disease can affect people of any age group, though it tends to be common in young adults and middle ages. However, children and old people can also be affected by this disease. Lichen planus affects females more commonly as compared to males. The cause of lichen planus is not well understood.

Types

There are several variants of Lichen Planus but the most common to occur are Lichen Planus Pigmentosa, Lichen Planopilaris and Lichen Planus Actinus. Read more

Causes

The exact cause of lichen planus has not been understood clearly yet. Some probable causes include immune reactions, chemicals, certain drugs, like anti-inflammatory medications, long-term use of certain antibiotics, excess stress, heredity and amalgam dental fillings. Read More

Symptoms

Lichen planus can be easily identified by the typical location of spots and their characteristic ‘violaceous’ appearance. Eruptions often involve the insides of wrists, ankles, lower back, scalp, nails and mucous membranes that line the mouth, nose, vagina, penis and anus. Small clusters in rows of flat-topped eruptions come up in these places; itching may vary from mild to severe. Read More
