What is Lichen Planca?
Lichen planca is an inflammatory skin condition that can cause bumps or lesions to appear on your skin, in your mouth, or on your nails. There is no known cause of lichen planca, and it usually disappears on its own. Most cases last about 2 years. This condition is most common in middle-aged adults between the ages of 30 and 60. It often affects perimenopausal women. It’s not infectious, so it can’t be passed from person to person.
Narrowband Therapy for Lichen Planca
The most common phototherapy for lichen planus is UVB light therapy, which penetrates only the upper layer of skin (epidermis). UVB Light therapy usually requires two to three treatments a week for several weeks.
***Please note*** – we strongly advise that you keep your GP or Dermatologist aware of any therapy regime and always seek their advice on any treatment of your condition.
