Lichen Planopilaris...newly diagnosed
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 last week and was prescribed Clobetasol Propion. It is only mildly helping and my skin is still burning and hair falling out. As it is only 6 days, I'm hoping for improvement. The scalp is still extremely sore where there are 3 stitches from the biopsy which the surgeon said would not fall out for another 6 weeks. – j
