Hi
Lichen planus is an autoimmune skin disorder where the skin is affected by your own immunity. The condition is usually self healing in about 2 years, however it tends to leave a hyperpigmentation. It is important to avoid stress, excessive junk food intake and smoking. Other diet is unlikely to affect lichen planus. Since the condition is internal, home remedies are not of any benefit.
Best regards
DR Rasya Dixit
