The cause is not known. But it is not contagious so it doesn’t involve any pathogen.
T cell mediated immunity is thought to be responsible for the development of disease.
Several cytokines are involved in lichen planus like interleukin 6, 8 and tumor necrosis factor.
But other contributing factors include viral infections, allergens, stress and genetic factors.
Homoeopathic medicines are natural, safe and without any side effects and they effectively cure the cases of lichen planus and moreover, they prevent the relapse of the disease
Aconite, Dulcamara, Kali Bich, Graphites, Antim Crude and Ars Alb are well indicated homoeopathic remedies for the treatment of lichen planus
But, only a properly selected homoeopathic remedy should be administered to the patient after a detailed and complete case taking on basis of characteristic individuality and constitution.
Homeopathic medicines create significant change in the cases of Lichen Planus. As a homeopathic practitioner we have seen a remarkable change that is too within the span of 5 to 6 months. During the process of the treatment the patient has to be educated enough about the disease.
The diet part also needs a special care specially when the patients are more fascinated with junk food. Many times burning of the part becomes more bothering in lichen planus than the eruption itself. But integrating homeopathic treatment timely can reduce it significantly.Diet:
‘મને લગભગ ૮ વર્ષ પહેલા લાઈક્ન પ્લેનસ નું નિદાન થયેલું. અતિશય બળતરા અને ખંજવાળ સતત રહેતા. ડો માંકડ ને ત્યાં લગભગ છેલ્લા ૪ એક મહિના થી દવા ચાલુ છે અને તકલીફ માં લગભગ ૭૦ % થી પણ વધુ ફાયદો છે.હોમીઓપથી એ લાઈક્ન પ્લેનસ માટે ખરેખર અસરકારક સાબિત થાય એવી દવા છે. મારી જેમ લાઈક્ન પ્લેનસ ના દર્દીઓ ને હું જરૂર દવા લેવાનું સુચન કરીશ.’

‘I have Lichen Planus since last 13 years. I am under homeopathic treatment since last 3 years & my diseases is significantly under control. I have hardly one patch in mouth these days. Rest of the patches have improved significantly. I was absolutely stressed because of lot of issues which led me to many other problems like hypertension & indigestion. I also had borderline increase of uric acid. All my these complaints have improved after I started the treatment at Dr.Mankads Homeoclinic. I was informed that I was given some homeopathic medicine named ‘Psorinum” in 1 M power. Although as far as I know the medicine may change in homeopathy as per the need of the patient.
