Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER! The cause of lichens planus isn't well known, but you could try doing these things to prevent it from spreading or getting worse:

  • Limit stress. Stress can make lichen planus worse.
  • Try not to scratch. Covering the rash with a bandage can help.
  • Calm the itch. Applying a cool cloth or using an oatmeal bath treatment can help. You can buy an oatmeal bath treatment at a drugstore.
  • Try not to injure your skin. A skin injury can cause an outbreak where the skin was injured.

You can also avoid typical outbreak triggers, which include Hepatitis C infection, Hepatitis B vaccine, flu vaccine, certain chemicals, non-steroidal anit-inflammatory drugs and naproxen (Advil, Motrin, Aleve, etc.), and certain heart disease/blood pressure medications.

It's a good idea to talk to your dermatologist for a more specific treatment. Hope that helps!
