Lichen planus is a common inflammatory disease of the skin and mouth. 

Skin LP affects men and women equally, but oral LP affects women twice as often as men. LP occurs most frequently in middle-aged adults. The cause of LP is not known. While there are many theories to explain LP, most dermatologists believe it can be classified as an autoimmune disease. Some people with LP can also have hepatitis C. 


Skin Lichen Planus

LP of the skin is characterized by reddish-purple, flat-topped bumps that may be very itchy. Some may have a white lacy appearance called Wickham`s Striae. They can be anywhere on the body, but seem to favor the inside of the wrists and ankles.While the typical appearance of LP makes the disease somewhat easy to identify, a skin biopsy may be needed to confirm the diagnosis. 


Oral Lichen Planus
LP of the mouth most commonly occurs inside of the cheeks, but can affect the tongue, lips, and gums.Oral LP typically appears as patches of fine white lines and can cause painful sores and ulcers in the mouth.
