Over a year ago I was diagnosed with erosive Lichen Planus. I was on steroids for over a year. Then I was almost off the steroids and I started losing a ton of my hair. I completely went off the steroids but I was still losing my hair. I also started a new medicine to treat the lichen planus- flagyl which worked well. I'm still losing a ton of hair and it's 5 months later. I stopped my birth control pill last month to see if that would help, but it has not. Also, my feet are completely numb, but I think thats from the flagyl. However, I lowered the dosage of flagyl it hasn't gotten better. So in short, my problems are, erosive LP, severely dry skin, numb skin and feet, balding. i'm a 25 year old female. What is wrong with me?
