Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. On regular skin, lichen planus may last from a few months to several years and spontaneously clear on its own. If it affects your mucous membranes, the disease may be more resistant to treatment and prone to recur. Medications and other treatments help relieve itching and promote healing.
Corticosteroids may reduce inflammation associated with lichen planus.  Retinoids are synthetic versions of vitamin A that can be applied topically or taken orally for treatment. You will need to speak with your dermatologist and he can prescribed the right treatment for your symptoms.
