What Is Lichen Planopilaris?
A rare inflammatory condition, lichen planopilaris causes patchy, progressive and permanent hair loss, specifically on the scalp. While the condition most often affects young adult women, it can also affect men. The condition frequently develops in combination with lichen planus, which is a condition that affects the skin, mucous membranes and nails.
Lichen planopilaris often causes characteristic patches of scalp hair loss that appear smooth and white. Additionally, no hair follicle openings are visible at the sites of hair loss. The edges of patches may appear scaly and red, and hairs can be easily removed or pulled out. Other symptoms include itching, pain, tenderness, discomfort and burning at and around the hair loss sites. The condition typically progresses slowly and affects the sides, front and lower back of the scalp.
