Dermatologist 's  Response
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Lichen Planus pigmentosus responds relatively poor to treatment. Treatment options include topical corticosteroids along with oral steroids or cyclosporine. As all of these medications can cause adverse effects, do consult your Dermatologist and discuss treatment options.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
