No: No association between whey protein consumption and lichen planus that I have ever heard of. Similarly, no association with liver calcification. There is a rare association between LP and viral hepatitis (usually hep c).

Liver calcifications: Cnps (nanobacteria) are the direct cause or implicated in the process of lichen planus and atopic dermatisit and liver calcifications and cysts.

Unrelated: Lichen planus is a rash on the skin and/or mouth that itches. Liver calicifications can occur from other sources, but not lichen planus. Whey protein will have nothing to do with either of these. Completely separate entities.
