Lichen planus and hair loss

Lichen planopilaris is a rare type of scarring hair loss. It commonly develops in association with lichen planus that affects the areas of skin where the hairs are present. This condition is quite uncommon but it does affect some people. Lichen planopilaris damages the hair follicle and then it is replaced with scarring, which results in permanent hair loss. This disease occurs in women more than men.

Lichen planopilaris causes

Lichen planopilaris causes are still not known, but they are linked with the immune system of the body. The trigger is unknown but T-Lymphocytes, a certain type of white blood cell, are known to be involved. Here, the hair loses its protection from the immune system and that is when the immune system attacks the hair follicle. But one thing is for sure that this disease is not contagious.
