LICHEN PLANUS (LP)
Lichen planus (LP for short) is one of the itchiest skin conditions known to man. It typically shows up as small (about 1/4 - 1/2 inch) purplish bumps on the skin that itch like crazy. The most common areas to get it are on the wrists and/or shins, although it is possible to have it on any part of the body. Anyone can get it at any age. Once you get it, it may last a few months and go away without treatment or it may last for years.
