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
Welcome to icliniq.com.
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 tablet Hydroxyzine 25 mg twice daily till the itchy subsides.
Along with this apply Clobetasol propionate on the itchy areas. But if large surface area is involved, dilute it in a moisturizing lotion in the ratio of 1:4. This will surely help you.

I have reviewed the attached photographs (attachment removed to protect patient identity).
In the first two pictures, I can see dark-colored pigmented areas. While in the third one, I can appreciate a thick hyperpigmented plaque.
I had already told you that pigmentation will take up to one year to resolve in 50 percent of the individuals and a little longer in rest of the individuals.
