What is lichen planus?
Lichen planus is a chronic condition that causes swelling and irritation in the skin, hair, nails, and mucus. It is a non-infectious disorder, thought to be autoimmune, estimated to affect around 1% of the population. It is observed that individuals with Hepatitis C are more prone to this condition. It is characterized by itchy and non-infectious rashes on the skin or small purplish bumps. Usually, mild cases do not require any treatment and severe cases require treatment from a certified doctor. In cases of skin lichen planus, rashes appear abruptly and last for many months. In cases of oral lichen planus, lacy white patches are formed inside of the cheeks, gum, tongue, and lips get affected. The same can be seen in the infected vagina.
Signs and Symptoms:
- Purplish, flat bumps
- Painful sores in the mouth or vagina
- Hair loss
- Damage to nails
Why choose Homeopathy?
The conventional treatment methods prescribe the use of antihistamines, steroid creams, and ointments that usually suppress the symptoms but do not eliminate the original cause of the condition. For people with more severe symptoms, even steroids are given as medicines when the ointments do not work. These medicines may lead to various side effects which can be avoided with homeopathic medicines that are natural and safe in every aspect and can be used by people of all ages.
