Homeopathy has proven its efficacy in case of lichen planus treatment. It is clearly demonstrated by clinical studies. In 2008, a research study was conducted at the Department of Oral Medicine, Tehran University of Medical Sciences. It was done to evaluate the effectiveness of Ignatia 30C (a homeopathic drug) in the management of oral lichen planus. In this single-blind randomised control clinical trial, 30 consecutive patients with oral lesions, detected clinically and histologically with erosive and/or atrophic oral lichen planus, were recruited. At the end of four months, the authors concluded that Ignatia has a beneficial effect in oral lichen planus treatment on selected patients.
