Lichen Planopilaris

Lichen Planopilaris is believed to be an autoimmune response where the body's immune system mistakenly attacks its hair follicles. This results in inflammation that leads to hair loss and can be accompanied by itching or pain. Along with its physical manifestations, the condition often leaves emotional scars due to its visible effects on appearance. The lack of a definitive cause makes treatment and prevention challenging. As research dresses, there is hope for better diagnostic tools and therapeutic options. For now, building a supportive community for those affected remains a priority. Raising awareness can also aid in reducing the stigma associated with visible hair loss conditions
