Adarsh Chopra, RR Mittal, Bupinder Kaur
Seventy five patients with Lichen Planus (LP) were enrolled from out-patient department for screening the therapeutic effect of dapsone. Patients were divided into two groups of 50 and 25. In regimen - 1 (RI) 25 patients were given local corticosteroids and oral chlorpheniramine maleate. In regimen - 2 (R2) 50 patients were given oral dapsone and chlorpheniramine maleate and topical coconut oil. It was found that total efficacy of R2 was 18% higher than R1.
