Welcome to healthcare magic.
Thank you for your query.

Your liver function report is not so bad.
SGPT is mildly elevated.
SGOT, S.bilirubin & alkaline phosphatase are normal
The major abnormality is altered AG ratio.
But it should be correlated with clinical feature & other blood test.

There is no correlation between lichen planus & liver infection.

Take care.
