    Lichen Planus
    fitneslui posted:
    Hello, I was diagnosed with Lichen Planus recently. My dermatologist does not seem to have a clue about this condition as she has prescribed me a series of ointments, creams and pills that not only cost an arm and a leg, but have also been ineffective and most are to treat psoriasis.The only dermatologist that I have been able to find in my area that seems to have knowledge about this condition, does not take my group insurance and being a single father of three, I cannot afford the money for a self pay consultation.
