In brief: Lichen planus

Topical steroid creams that, for example, are under wrapping or taped at bedtime may also be useful when possible.
For localized, itchy, thick lesions, injections of corticosteroids may be given. Antihistamines may blunt the itch, particularly if it is only moderate. Oral immunosuppressants are also used in more severe cases.
