Rohit is a 30-year old male and had the distinct misery of being diagnosed with Lichen Planus. Back in December, he noticed a small rough patch on the inside of his right cheek. It didn’t hurt him so he was not worried about the patch. Several months later, after returning from vacation, the roughness had spread to completely cover his both the cheeks, the skin was lacy white, and he was unable to eat hot and spicy food.
By this time, he was in a state of panic and disbelief due to lack of information and knowledge about lichen planus treatment options. Meanwhile, he was using some topical steroid suggested by a chemist, but it didn’t help him.

Thus it has been clinically proved that homeopathic medicines are definitely effective in the treatment of Lichen Planus.
