Have you had a chance to discuss if hormones could be playing a part in your lichen planus flare ups with your doctor?

Hello Mr John thank you for your response. I have only manager to share this theory with my obgyn and general practitioner but haven't been able to see my dermatologist. Most of my lichen planus affects all of my skin below the bust to thighs, and arms and back. The most severe is my scalp and I experience extreme hsir loss. Definitely going to check through the other thread as suggested.. thank you
