In brief: A good question
Lp is thought to be an immune system mediated response.
To what is not yet known for sure. The end result being the typical itchy, purplish papules that are the classic clinical findings. There are also a number of different types of lp. So seeing a dermatologist would help you with the exact diagnosis.
