Hello @clora and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I am sorry to hear that you are struggling and not seeing improvement.

I found this article on lichen planus that may be of interest to you as you explore where to go from here:

– Turmeric – A new treatment option for lichen planus: A pilot study
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3961895/
Like everything, it would be recommended to discuss with your doctor first. Have you heard of Turmeric before?

Yes, I have heard of it but not tried it. Will certainly give it a try. Thank You! Planning to also start an anti-inflammatory diet. I truly need to eliminate some foods I am allergic to but “cheat”. I also forgot to mention I do use a hairmax laser. Always looking to try new things that might help and I try to be optimistic. thanks again.

My only caveat is if you already have iron deficiency amenia, do not take tumeric. It chelates iron from yout body.
