she can start the treatment

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Welcome to I have read your query. I understand your concern.
In hypertrophic lichen planus, topical steroid is considered as the best treatment modality as your doctor has already advised. In non responding cases, consideration is given to inject steroid intralesionally after an interval of 3 weeks.
The moat important is to avoid itch for which your doctor has prescribed you antihistaminics.
Your wife may continue with the recommended treatment . If you have any further query, you may ask me.
take care .
