Lichen Amyloidosis: Lichen amyloidosis (la) is a type of primary localized cutaneous amyloidosis clinically characterized by persistent pruritic, hyperkeratotic papules commonly distributed on the shins and histopathologically characterized by amyloid deposits in the papillary dermis. Fractional laser if effective. No sexual side effects have been shown for this condition on the shins.
