What is Lichen Planus?
An inflammatory condition that targets the skin and mucous membranes, lichen planus often causes pain and itching in sensitive areas. Typically characterized by purplish, flat-topped bumps on the skin, lichen planus can also affect the mouth, vagina and other areas covered by a mucous membrane. In these areas, lichen planus often presents as white lacy patches that sometime translate into painful sores.
While the specific symptoms of lichen planus depend on the area affected, several common symptoms regularly occur. On the external skin, typically the forearm, wrist and ankle, the condition often presents as purplish, flat-topped bumps. White spots typically appear in the mouth, on the cheeks, near the gums and lips or on the tongue. Other common symptoms include itching, blisters that burst and form scabs or crusts, painful oral or vaginal ulcers, hair loss, scalp discoloration and nail damage or loss.
