Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for your question.

Lichen planus is an inflammatory condition that can affect the skin, hair, nails and mucous membranes.

Asthma, COPD, pneumonia,and bronchitis are just four medical conditions that can cause lung inflammation. Mold and mildew can act as triggers.
