What is it
Lichen planus or lichen ruber planus is a frequent form of inflammatory dermatitis characterized by the formation of numerous, violet-coloured itchy papules that may cover the entire body, although they usually first appear on the wrists.
Lichen planus has a chronic course and often relapses.
It is not known what causes it or how to cure it.
What to do
Creams containing natural reducing agents, such as the ichtyol sulfonate contained in DERMICTIOL CREAM, reduce the itching and the duration of the manifestations.
A small amount of DERMICTIOL CREAM should be massaged well into the skin until it is completely absorbed.
