Lichen Planus Introduction
Lichen planus is a relatively common skin disease that comes in episodes lasting months to years. It can be said that it is caused by reaction in response to more than one provoking factor like stress, genetics, infective (viral hepatitis C) and immunologic (autoimmune), etc.
Lichen planus eruptions appears as shiny, flat-topped bumps having an angular shape. These bumps have a reddish-purplish color with a shiny cast with very fine scales. The disease can affect all over the body, but commonly affected areas are inside of the wrists and ankles, the lower legs, back, and neck. The mouth, genital region, hair and nails are affected in some individuals. Thick patches may occur, especially on the shins and is called as lichenified lesions
