I am suffering from acute eruptive lichen planus. I consulted a doctor and had some medicines. But still the marks are there and itching too. I am applying Lobate cream. Even now I can see new eruptions especially in my legs which are red in color and itchy. Please suggest some good medicine.
Lichen planus is a chronic and self-limiting disease. It has been seen that skin lesions subside within 9-12 months in about 50 percent of the cases. Since you are still developing fresh lesions you will have to take a course of tablet Prednisolone 20 mg daily for 6 weeks which can be reduced gradually. You seem to have severe itching which is not responding much to Levocetirizine. I would recommend you take the tablet Hydroxyzine 25 mg twice daily till the itch subsides. Along with this apply Clobetasol propionate on the itchy areas. But if a large surface area is involved, dilute it in a moisturizing lotion in a ratio of 1:4. This will surely help you.
The Probable causes:
1. Immune dysfunction.
2. Genetic causes.
3. Dental amalgam.
Lichenoid drug eruption.
Reduce stress and anxiety.
I had the medicines you suggested and I am applying the cream till date. But, there is no difference. It is still the same. The other which are cured still have some marks. Please suggest something effective to cure the marks. I am sending you the current image. Please check. Thank you.
