Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

Even though LP is a self limiting disease, it becomes very chronic at times.There are limited options available here.Apart from topical steroids ,oral dapsone works best.Yes you can get cured of this.Marks may take long time to go.
If you have lichen planus pigmentoses ,then the options is oral vit A tablets.
