hello,

it will be better to see the photos and diagnose your condition. would it be possible for you to post them here through amazonaws.com or picassa?

you can also give me information on the size, shape,color of the lesions? Whether they are flat or raised? how do they start? where did they first start? how did it progress? any fluid filled or pus filled lesions? are you on any other medications?

If you cannot send me photos, please do let me know.

Regards.

Dermatologist: Dermadoc, Board Certified Dermatologist replied 8 years ago
hello,

thanks for the photos.

they were of great help.

you have a condition called lichen planus.

it is not a serious condition.

you need to apply mometasone furoate cream once a day to the lesions for 15 days.

it should not be applied on the neighboring skin.

also take tablet loratidine 5 mg once a day for 15 days.

in case they do not heal then taking oral treatment with methotrexate or dapsone can be tried under medical supervision.

please feel free to ask me in case you have any queries.

hope this answer was useful. please click on the green accept button if so. any bonus or positive feedback would be appreciated.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
