Lichen planus also known as (Jild ki bemariyon me se aik qisamجِلدکی بيمارِيوں ميں سے ايکقسم) is the inflammation (swelling and irritation) of skin, hair, nails and mucous membranes. Once the skin gets affected by lichen planus, it usually appears as a purplish, itchy, flat lesion for several weeks. Other areas like the mouth, vagina, etc. are surrounded by mucous membranes in which white lacy painful patches or lesions appear.
Typically, lichen planus can be managed at home, without prescription drugs. So, you can try to relieve this disease with home-made ingredients. It is not contagious like other skin diseases.
