Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

There are no specific diet plans for lichen planus.But apart from steroid the best drug (in fact the drug of choice ) is dapsone.This needs to be taken for few months to have good result.
Before giving dapsone you need to go for certain blood test which your dermatologist would guide you.

Hope this helps you .
