I contacted a doctor which treated me for 4 month as photocontact melanosis.I had chemical peels and De Tan for the same but of no use.i further contacted a doctor which is saying i am having LPP(lichen planus pigmentous).No one from my parental side is having this type of disease.what can be this disease? Is this curable? do i have to take any precaution?

I was recently diagnosed with lichen sclerosis. I find it difficult to see where to apply the strong cortisone cream I have been prescribed due to my pubic hair. Given that this condition may require treatment for the rest of my life, I am considering having all of my pubic hair lasered away permanently. Do you think this would impact negatively on this condition, to have laser on the skin where I have the lichen sclerosis, as well as everywhere else?

I have lichen planus and have had this for a few years now, it came and went and has come back stronger. This time it has effected y scalp really badly and caused alapecia, despite hours spent on the net looking for treatments of hair loss, it all basically says the same: lichen planus in the scalp causes permanent hair loss and no suggestions for treatments. I am really desperate now and would like a suggestion for a possible treatment please
