Lichen Planopilaris (LPP) is a type of hair loss that occurs when common skin disease, known as lichen planus, affects skin areas where there is hair. It destroys hair follicles and then replaces them with scarring. It is 2 to 3 times more prevalent in women and is seen mostly in Caucasian adults.Want Appointment ?
Flat lichen usually causes severe itching on the scalp. Crown and Tops (the top of the scalp) are the most common area that gets affected. Other symptoms that people may experience occasionally include pain, allergies in the scalp. Areas of hair loss can be observed. It can also affect the other parts of the body such as the mouth, genitals, skin, and nails. Therefore it's recommended to consult a dermatologist at the earliest.
The diagnosis can be confirmed in a scalp biopsy that includes hair with surrounding redness and scales on the edge of the hair loss. Treatment should be sought and presented soon, as it gets difficult to recover lost hair that has been replaced with scarring. The objective of the treatment is to reduce disease progression and relieve symptoms.
