Lichen Planus Treatment
Modern medicine finds little help for this chronic disease. Conventional treatment of lichen planus disease makes use of antihistaminics, dapsone, topical and systemic steroids. But long-term usage of these medications tend to cause side-effects, renal and hepatic ones being the commonest.
Fortunately, homeopathy, the fast-growing alternative medicine, has a promising treatment for Lichen Planus. Since homeopathy targets the psychosomatic nature of this disorder, it treats not only the body but also the mind, thus giving lasting results. Homeopathic medicines for lichen planus target the altered immunity of the body and bring it back to normalcy over a period of time. Additionally, homeopathy prevents future relapses of the disease and the treatment is free from side-effects.

Mrs. Seema Kapoor came to our clinic with a history of severe itching on the inner forearm.

With continued treatment, she experienced a lasting relief over a period of 1 year and was very satisfied with the results.
