Has anyone recently been disagnosed with Lichen Planopilaris? Would be interested in your results following biopsy and treatment.

Hi @tsafer, welcome. I moved your question about Lichen Planopilaris (also known as lichen planus) to this existing discussion. I did this so you can meet fellow members like @ginyer @lorrainechavez @nets2020 @siroisjli @pat68 @lfj9487 @joy4trees @fdixon63 and others.

Tsafer, have you been recently diagnosed with LP? What treatment plan was suggested for you?

I was diagnosed in January 2021 with 2-biopsies. I had been losing hair for a few years and my original Derm did not feel I needed it as he would refer to my scalp burning as being “angry” due to many chemical allergies. Obviously this was wrong. I am not a candidate for Placquenil. My new Derm had me start with Doxycycline mono 100mg, twice daily for 3 months. Just recently it was reduced to 1-capsule daily. I was also given Clobetosol foam PRN. which temporarily calms the area. Since reducing the Doxy I have had more hair loss. Waiting to hear from my doc. Unfortunately from what I have read and been told there aren’t too many options for me.
