hi welcome to healthcaremagic
Currently there is no cure for lichen planus but there are certain types of medicines used to reduce the effects of the inflammation. Lichen planus may go into a dormant state after treatment. There are also reports that lichen planus can flare up years after it is considered cured.u can actually go for UV-B phototherapy..your treatment depends after examination..consult a good dermatologist
