Thanks for the query. Lichen planus is a auto-immune skin disease and can not be treated well unless a complete evaluation is done. It could affect the oral cavity and genitalia as well and it should be looked for. A proper treatment is available and results are very good though it may take few months to cure. Photograph is suggestive of lichen planus and may not a skin biopsy. All the best.
