Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Sorry to hear about your wife's symptoms.
What medications has she tried to control lichen planus related symptoms?
Has she tried any special shoes to prevent blisters?
Ok thanks for your reply.
Easy blister formation suggests weakened epidermis layer and fluid accumulation from immune response against the skin layers.
A potent steroid ointment like clobetasol 0.5% can be tried to reduce blister formation.
Oral steroid course is next option if topical does not work.
Phototherapy with UVA light is another good option for resistant symptoms.
To reduce blisters. friction under the foot surface needs to be reduced.
Special insoles like Spenco or silicone gel to be inserted into comfortable shoes should be helpful in preventing blister formation.
Socks made with coolmax material also helps to prevent blister formation.
