Lichen Planus is a chronic, non-contagious, inflammatory disease that impacts the skin and mucosal membranes. Due to the immune system’s inability to distinguish between its cells and foreign cells, this autoimmune illness makes our body start attacking healthy cells mistakenly.


Lichen Planus Pigmentosus (LPP) is characterized by slaty-gray pigmentation that is chronic and asymptomatic and mostly affects the face. The pattern can be “actinic” with symmetric and diffuse pigmentation in sun-exposed areas, most frequently in people with dark skin. Rarely, it may also appear as macular pigmentation of the flexures in people with a lighter complexion.


Lichen planus affects the skin, hair, nails, mouth, and genitalia. The skin condition frequently manifests on the skin as flat, purple, and itchy pimples that grow over several weeks. Lichen planus develops lacy white patches in the mouth and vaginal mucosa, occasionally accompanied by uncomfortable ulcers.

Causes of Lichen Planus Pigmentosus

An unidentified protein in the skin and mucosal keratinocytes is the target of inflammatory cells in the autoimmune condition known as lichen planus, which is T-cell mediated.

Lichen planus may result due to several reasons, including:

  • Genetic propensity
  • Psychological and physical strain
  • Skin damage; lichen planus frequently develops after surgery or in areas where the skin has been damaged
  • Localized skin conditions such as herpes zoster
  • Hepatitis C is one example of a systemic viral illness.
  • Contact allergies, such as those to color photography development and metal fillings in oral lichen planus
  • A lichenoid rash may result due to drugs, including gold, quinine, quinidine, and others.


Symptoms of Lichen Planus Pigmentosus

  • Most frequently on the inner forearm, wrist, or ankle, but occasionally on the external genitalia, papules, or flat-topped lumps
  • The rough, greasy appearance of the lesions
  • Itching
  • Scratching could result in bleeding
  • When eating spicy food, you may notice white spots or patches in your mouth (inside your cheeks, on your tongue, or on your gums).
  • Throbbing vaginal or oral ulcers
  • Hair loss and a discolored scalp
  • Loss or damage to nails


Homeopathy Treatment for Lichen Planus Pigmentosus

Lichen planus is a chronic, difficult-to-treat ailment, yet homeopathy can help people heal from this skin condition. The primary line of defense against Lichen Planus is homeopathy. For the majority of lichen planus patients, homeopathy is highly recommended. Homeopathic treatments for lichen planus work at the immune system level to correct the body’s errant function. They also assist in managing Lichen Planus symptoms without causing any side effects.


All kinds of Lichen Planus can be treated effectively with homeopathy. Homeopathic medicines safely treat immune system disorders without inhibiting them because they are entirely natural. They aid in the treatment of LP-related skin lesions and pigmentation while strengthening your immune system.


When a case is newly discovered and hasn’t been altered by steroids, one should consider homeopathy. In cases with oral lichen planus, lichen planopilaris, and lichen planus pigmentosa, where the main goal is to restrict the spread of the disease while reducing the number of lesions, homeopathy is strongly recommended. Restricting the further spread of lichen planus, an autoimmune disease that spreads, is also a commendable accomplishment.


Some medicines that are used in lichen planus pigmentosus treatment

  1. Sulfur

Sulfur is the most effective and frequently used natural medicine to treat various types of skin illnesses, particularly in cutaneous lichen planus when the eruptions happen to deteriorate owing to the local application of other ointments and increase quickly. Patients with poor skin who have cutaneous LP with papules and severe skin dryness respond effectively to sulfur. This medication works great for treating severe itching in breakouts. Scratching leaves a mark and offers some relief from itching. Scratching may result in a burning feeling in these circumstances. In general, the itching gets worse at night and when you get warm in bed. These symptoms are indicative of the need for this homeopathic remedy.


  1. Arsenicum Album

When lichen planus has blue eruptions that are dry, rough, and scaly in appearance, Arsenicum Album is particularly effective. In these situations, scaling is intense. The eruptions can be very dry, which intensifies the itching and forces the sufferer to scratch all the time. The skin condition and discomfort aggravate, particularly at night, the more one scratches. In the later stages, when the plaques have disappeared and the underlying skin is hard, the medication Arsenicum Album is also recommended. When there are heavy scabs on the scalp due to LP, it is also beneficial.


  1. Merc Sol

One of the best natural treatments for mucosal lichen planus, particularly for oral lichen planus, is Merc Sol. When the patient’s primary complaint is irregular cheek ulcers, Merc Sol is the recommended treatment. There are no clearly defined edges. The cheeks have an extremely unclean and unhealthy appearance. Along with these ulcers, the mouth also produces more saliva and has a terrible odor.


  1. Anthrakokali

Anthrakokali is a fairly uncommon natural remedy that can benefit a variety of people with lichen planus. Being uncommon does not imply that this natural remedy works less effectively than other widely used medications. When papular eruptions are conspicuously apparent on the hands and feet, anthrakokali begins to take effect. In males, the scrotum may also be covered by papules. In the case of papular eruptions, severe itching can occur. This medication also works well in situations of Lichen Planus where the area around the tibia is the predominant site.


  1. Kali Iodatum

When there are purple patches on the body, particularly on the legs, Kali Iodatum aids LP cases. These eruptions are often papular and dry. In many people, itching worsens primarily at night or in hot environments, including under heated bedcovers.


Homeopathic medicines including Natrum Uriaticum, Apis Mellifica, Borax, Thuja Occidentalis, and Kali Chloratum have been discovered to be quite effective in treating the disease’s disordered immunity, which is considered to be its primary cause.


The length of the treatment in homeopathy depends on how long the patient has been ill. The length of the required treatment depends on how chronic the condition is. If steroids were administered for a longer amount of time during the initial treatment, the result is a complex disease that is difficult to manage.


Every individual receives a unique homeopathic remedy for lichen planus. To tailor the treatment for Lichen Planus, a thorough medical history is necessary. After carefully examining your prior Lichen Planus therapies and medications that you have used, a homeopathic treatment plan for Lichen Planus is developed. So, if you happen to suffer from lichen planus at any time, count on homeopathy without a second thought.
