welcome to healthcare magic forum
thank you for your query
lichen planus is chronic condition .
recurrence is like rule in lichen planus
you need to apply medicine continuously for it
first we have to find reason for it ,in most case infection is cause ,so once we treat it ,we have good control over lichen planus
self medication is not advisable
better to consult dermatologist and get the treatment
i hope i answered your question
