Lichen Planopilaris...newly diagnosed

Posted by ginyer @ginyer, Feb 17, 2020

Hi, new to the site and new to the diagnosis. Just was hoping to touch base with anyone else that may have dealt with this or be dealing with it. I’ve had thinning of hair over the years but it would always stop and some would come back, but I would say this “dropping” as I call it has been going on over a year now…I’ve seen the dermatologist in the past and we never knew what caused it. I was at dermatologist for a completely different issue, no intention of her looking at my scalp, but she did and immediately wanted to take a biopsy. She said the name and said, no, this was a brand new issue, and the biopsy came back as the lichen planopilaris. I just had my first set of scalp injections today. Anyway, if anyone else is dealing with this, would be very interested in treatment plans, etc.

@siroisjli I just went into the Kiera.com website and the description addresses only hair loss. No mention of it being goos for lichen planopilaris. Have I got the correct website?
