Need to Know About the Cure for Lichen Planopilaris
Dear Ted I have been reading your about your remedies and I have to say, I am impressed. I hope that you will be able to help. My teenage son (18) has been diagnosed with Lichen Planopilaris (biopsies were inconclusive but LP was seen to be the likely outcome). He has been losing hair and has a tender scalp on the crown and vertex. He has been on Planquenil and Dermavite topical lotion and has seen some improvement. However, he does frequently complain about tenderness in the scalp. I have read that Tea Tree Oil and Lavender may help this condition. Doctors are unable to treat this condition as they are not sure what causes this. It is an autoimmune disease which attacks healthy follicles and replaces them with scar tissues. They say that suppressing the immune system may be the only way to halt this disease. There is currently no known cure. Please can you help.
