Homeopathy Treatment for Lichen Planus
Safer alternative for Lichen Planus sufferers without Steroids
Lichen Planus lesions develop due to a faulty immune response in which inflammatory cells seem to mistake normal skin cells and attack them. This immune reaction is probably triggered by a viral infection (Hepatitis C) and common allergens such as drugs and dyes. Emotional stress tends to aggravate the lesions as it influences the immune response.
BEWARE: STEROIDS are commonly prescribed in the form of local creams or pastes and internally in stubborn cases. Steroids suppress the immune response and offer immediate relief. However, they do not offer long term relief or a cure and are associated with numerous side effects. Lichen Planus lesions may reappear as the effects are temporary.
Hope for Lichen Planus sufferers: Many consider Lichen Planus as a challenging and an incurable condition. Instead or improving the defective immune response (autoimmune) conventional medicines (steroids) suppress it. Long term relief is seldom experienced as the lesions will tend to reappear on stopping the medication.

Since this condition is related to an altered immune system, it is empirical that we study and take into consideration the individual’s immune status, body’s response to viral infections, family history and age before prescribing the remedy.
After considering these factors the indicated Homeopathic remedy is prescribed for a period of 3-6 months. During this period changes in your immune response and reduction in spread of the lesion can be achieved.
