Potential causes of Lichen Planus

While the exact cause of lichen planus is still unknown, there are several factors that are believed to contribute to the development of this condition. It is often considered an autoimmune disorder, where the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy skin cells. Other possible causes may include viral infections, allergens, certain medications, and genetic predisposition. However, it is important to note that lichen planus is not contagious and cannot be spread from person to person.
