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.

Homeopathic medicine for lichen planus targets the altered immunity of the body and brings it back to normalcy over a period of time. Lichen planus treatment in homeopathy helps in the treatment of existing lesions as well as their spread further while also reducing itching. Unlike conventional treatment (which includes steroids), lichen planus treatment in homeopathy aims to give lasting relief to the patients.
Response to the lichen planus treatment depends on various factors such as the duration and severity of the ailment, general health of the patient as well as the extent of spread of the disease. Clinical experience suggests that lichen planus of the skin is easier to treat as compared to oral and genital lesions.
Most importantly, homeopathic medicine for lichen planus is safe, free from side-effects and also non-habit forming. Therefore, it is suitable for people of all age groups.
