Lichen Planus Rash
Lichen Planus causes firm, shiny, itchy red bumps that develop in clusters on the skin, in the mouth, or both. Most commonly, symptoms appear on the wrists, lower back, ankles. They can also present on the genitals. In some cases, lichen planus bumps appear to have thin white lines, or Wickham's striae, running through them. Surrounding the affected area, skin may be thick, scaly or rough. If symptoms present on the genitals, the bumps can look more like blisters or small sores and are typically painful. Oral lichen planus produces tiny white dots and lines on the inside of the cheeks, tongue or gums. This may be accompanied by inflammation, redness, painful sores or peeling gums. In rare cases, lichen planus affects the fingernails or toenails, causing a brittle nailbed with grooves, ridges or splits. Left untreated, this can result in the nail breaking off temporarily or permanently.
There is no widely agreed upon cause for lichen planus. It may be triggered by the use of certain medications such as antimalarials, and is more common in those with hepatitis C. Lichen planus symptoms affect all ages but are most common in middle-aged adults, sometimes reoccurring over multiple years. They are extremely persistent, often taking 2 years or longer to clear. There is no 100% cure for this condition, although lichen planus treatments can help soothe symptoms. If you experience symptoms resembling those associated with lichen planus, do not attempt to self-diagnose. Seek advice from a medical professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.
