How to treat lichen in humans


Deprive is a highly contagious human skin disease. Under this name a whole complex of various pathological inflammatory processes on the skin, the causative agents of which are fungi and viruses, is combined. The causes, as well as the causative agents of certain types of lichens, still remain only theoretical conjectures. Only the occurrence of ringworm in humans is proved by the introduction of 2 types of fungi in the skin. It is also convincing and justified that the occurrence of shingles is associated with a herpes infection.

Since each of the species has a different origin, respectively, and the treatment of depriving a person of each type is different and aimed at combating a specific pathogen — a certain type of fungus or a virus. To differentiate any skin disease, you should contact a dermatologist, who either diagnoses on the basis of an examination, or you will need to pass a scraping from the damaged area for bacterial analysis. And only after specifying the diagnosis, determining the severity, depth of the lesion, the duration of the disease, taking into account the age and associated diseases, the doctor will prescribe the appropriate treatment for her.

Types of depriving a person

A person can develop the following types of lichen:

its pathogen is not yet known, it is believed that its occurrence is associated with herpes infection, occurs as a rule, when the body is weakened, manifests itself in the form of pink or reddish spots with peeling. This type of lichen should not be actively treated, after 1.5, a maximum of 2 months of lichen self passes.

Pink lichen, like almost all lichen, allergic reactions and other skin diseases at the very beginning appear pink spots on the skin, which at first are most often solitary, and then spread and become more numerous (chopped, ringworm, shingles, lichen planus). You can not engage in self-diagnosis and self-treatment, establish a diagnosis based on the photo and the description of the disease. Only a dermatologist can differentiate the type of skin lesion, and first of all you should consult a specialist. Since the treatment of all types of lichen is very different and should only be prescribed by a dermatologist.

  • Ringworm, microsporia, trichophytia of smooth skin or ringworm

the causative agent is fungi, one species of which is transmitted from animals, the other occurs only in humans.

  • Chug, colored, multi-colored versicolor

it is also a fungal disease, a solar fungus, its pathogen is Microsporon furfur, a pathogenic filamentous fungus. The peculiarity of this type of fungus is the color change of the affected skin after sunburn, from dark to discolored, without treatment in the winter, a reverse color change occurs.

  • Shingles, Herpes

the most studied type of lichen, the causative agent of which is the herpes virus Zoster, a characteristic feature of which is intense pain during the progression of the disease.

Little studied the origin of this type of depriving a person. Treatment is also considered quite difficult. It is assumed that various neurogenic, metabolic disorders in the body in response to physical or chemical factors can provoke the onset of activation of a virus in the body.

Before starting treatment with depriving ointments, creams, sprays or various solutions, you should know exactly what kind of depriving a person whose treatment with the wrong diagnosis can lead to deterioration, eczema or depriving the patient of a chronic, difficult to treat form.

Especially carefully it is necessary to treat the use of all sorts of hormonal ointments, since depriving is fungal and viral origin is a big EVIL, they first of all help, and then worsen the condition and lead to a chronic course of the disease. A complete list of all hormonal ointments for psoriasis, dermatitis, allergies, as well as to read about the dangers of their use can be on our website.

The table shows the types of depriving a person, their brief description and basic principles of therapy.

How to start treatment depriving

Immediately after a skin rash or red spots appear, we advise you to contact a dermatologist to begin treatment. If you do not delay the campaign to the doctor, then the treatment will be able to pass quickly, in opposite cases, get rid of depriving the process is long and long. In some cases, herpes resembles a lesion disorder, so the diagnosis needs to be clarified. But even an experienced specialist is sometimes hard to determine the type of lichen, it is necessary to conduct special studies.

How to find out which zoster struck you? From the photographs presented on the Internet, it is difficult to accurately identify and recognize a type of rash, you can only see what the pink lichen looks like. The success of treatment depends on how quickly the therapy is initiated and whether the right medicine is chosen for the disease. Indeed, in some cases, to remove and cure the lichen is not easy, sometimes the ailment is treatable at home.

Ringworm treatment

This type of skin disease people suffer in most cases. The disease is transmitted from person to person, as well as from animals to people. The causative agent is a microscopic fungus trichophyton. For the treatment of this type of disease, therapy is usually prescribed by external and internal medication. It is better to start therapy after consulting a dermatologist.

If the focus of the disease is a small area of ​​skin, the surface of which is dry, local administration of ointments such as Clotrimazole, Lamisil, Miconazole, etc., is prescribed. If the fungus had time to hit a large area of ​​the skin, the use of ointments will have to be combined with the administration of antibiotics - tablets or subcutaneous injections, such as "Orungal" or "Griseofulvin." Without the complete destruction of trihofiton cells in this case, it is impossible to get rid of the disease.

If the pathogen struck the scalp and neck, the chin is appointed with a shampoo “Nizoral”. This tool will eliminate the burning and peeling of the skin, other unpleasant symptoms. Hair on the affected skin should be cut off.

Treatment of multi-colored lichen

If the disease first manifested itself, sunbathing will help to get rid of it - ultraviolet will quickly destroy the pathogen. But the problem is that the colorful or color lichen easily goes into the chronic stage. If during the warm period of time the wounds begin to heal, then in the winter ailment it will make itself known by new manifestations.

Therefore, it is better to combine ultraviolet treatment with depriving foci of treatment — to smear the affected areas with Miconazole and other medical preparations, as well as exfoliating agents (salicylic alcohol). The scheme is as follows: during the daytime, the lesion is smeared with an antifungal medication, in the evening the skin is treated with salicylic alcohol, and at night it is necessary to anoint with a miconazole. After 4-5 days, the skin will recover, the wounds will stop itching and heal.

Shingles treatment

Treatment of this type of the disease is carried out in three directions. The affected skin areas (purulent vesicles) are treated with "green paint" or they are cauterized with other preparations. "Acyclovir" is prescribed to eliminate the source of infection. If the skin is very itchy, sore, has a wet surface, prescribe drugs to reduce pain, creams or ointments. Finally, for the fastest recovery, doctors recommend starting taking vitamin complexes.

Treatment of flat red lichen

This type of skin disease mainly affects women. Antibiotics, hormones and antihistamines are used to treat the disease - hydrocortisone ointment, penicillin group drugs, “Tavegil.” For severe pains and itching, analgesics are recommended. To increase the body's defenses, doctors advise taking drugs and vitamins to increase immunity.

Honey with grated garlic

A few cloves of garlic are ground on a grater and mixed with natural honey until smooth. The resulting mixture is distributed over the skin with lichen plaques, which contributes to their disappearance. The course of treatment is two to three weeks.

A similar recipe, but without honey in the composition - crushed garlic is rubbed into the affected areas, after which you can not wet the skin for several hours.

Garlic compresses on the skin with deprive allow you to return to its former appearance in a few days. Chopped garlic is wrapped in cheesecloth and applied to areas with lichen rashes for 10-15 minutes.

Lemon with garlic

Common signs of depriving a person

First of all, it is worth noting that the lichen can occur, both openly and in latent (hidden form).

Deprive can only appear on the local part of the body (most often on the scalp, genitals) or cover the entire skin of the patient entirely.

Regardless of the type of pathogens, the site of infection, the individual characteristics of the patient, there are depriving symptoms common to all. These include:

  • Pigmentation disorders. Affected skin may become darker or lighter, acquire a bright red, brown or pink tint.
  • Most often in the area of ​​pigmentation changes, peeling is observed, sometimes - the appearance of bubbles filled with a transparent liquid.
  • All changes on the skin are accompanied by severe, difficult to tolerate itching.

Common to all types of lichen are preventive measures that prevent infection. To protect themselves from an unpleasant and unsightly illness, people must:

  • Strictly follow the basic rules of personal hygiene. You can become infected through someone else's clothes, shoes or hygiene items.
  • Do not touch unfamiliar animals or animals with severe signs of illness.
  • Children attending kindergartens or schools, other clusters of children, regularly show dermatologists.

Deprive - the disease is unpleasant, but to be completely cured. There are even some varieties of lichen that do not require treatment, but pass by themselves.

Today, the most common:

  • Pink versicolor or Giber disease.
  • Pityriasis versicolor, which is also known as "colored" or "multicolored."
  • Scaly versicolor, popularly known as fish scale or psoriasis.
  • Ringworm (also known as "ringworm" or trichophytia).
  • Microsporia. Very contagious form, which is often confused with ringworm.
  • Soaking lichen, more familiar to most like eczema.
  • Herpes zoster, sometimes referred to as herpes.

Each species is caused by a specific pathogen and is subject to strictly defined treatment. The result of untreated deprivation can be permanently disfigured skin or lost hair.

Pathogens and symptoms of typical pink lichen

Similarly, the causative agent of Jiber disease is unknown. Some experts suggest that the source of the disease is the herpes virus type 7. Others believe that the disease is caused by one of the respiratory viruses.

The disease begins with the appearance on the body of a large pink spot, slightly flaking in the middle. For most infected people, its diameter varies between 3 and 5 centimeters. Sometimes (rarely) simultaneous appearance of several primary spots on different parts of the body is possible.

As the disease progresses, the scales fall off, the stain acquires a yellowish-brown hue, and at its edges a pink, without scales appears, a rim. Maternal stain (the so-called first manifestation of the disease) looks very similar to a medallion. It is for this characteristic symptom that doctors most often diagnose “lichen pink”.

After one or two weeks, “babies” appear at the maternal spot. These spots are smaller in size, have a brown-pink or pink-yellow center. Their number may be different for each patient. Experts have noticed that secondary plaques are located along the lines of Langer. So called those lines on the body, where the skin stretches the most when moving. In general, the picture of the location of the "medallions" resembles a spruce branch.

It is also established that most often plaques appear on the trunk and extremities, and never on the face or neck.

In the course of the study, it was found that about half of the patients with the appearance of spots feel a barely noticeable itching when touching the plaques. A quarter of patients do not experience unpleasant skin sensations, and another quarter of patients (with increased emotionality) complains of a noticeable itch in the area of ​​"medallions".

Atypical forms of pink lichen

Sometimes the disease takes an unusual form. In this case, pink versicolor is called atypical. The symptoms of flaky roseola are no longer similar to the classical clinical picture, the course of the disease itself changes somewhat. In particular, dermatologists have observed:

  • The development of the disease without the appearance of the primary maternal stain.
  • The appearance of plaques on the face and neck (in exceptional cases).
  • Rash in the form of vesicles (hemispherical, bubbles with a clear liquid towering above the skin), pustules (hemispherical abscesses) or hemorrhages (microscopic hemorrhages into the surrounding tissues).
  • The development of pityriasis rosea irritata. So called skin changes inherent in pink deprive, but occurring on the skin in places of friction, compression, sweating.

Sometimes the pityriasis rosea irritata plaque is caused by improper use of medications. In this case, they cause very severe itching and require special treatment.

The doctor most often makes a diagnosis based on an external examination. If the patient reports that plaques on the body are more than 12 weeks old or itchy, the dermatologist prescribes a biopsy (removal of the affected tissue). The analysis is necessary to exclude another diagnosis - parapsoriaz. It is also mandatory to assign tests to eliminate syphilis, erythema migrans or multiforme, mycoses (fungal skin lesions).

Treatment for typical pink lichen is not required. Only in case of severe itching can the doctor prescribe antipruritic drugs (topically). But there are limitations to ease the course of the disease.

  • During water procedures you should not use hard washcloths or aggressive detergents.
  • Contact of affected areas with hard, wool or synthetic fabrics should be avoided.
  • It is necessary to limit the use of cosmetics and perfume. Categorically it is impossible to put them on the affected places.
  • Do not use ointments, powders, etc. For unknown reasons, they cause the disease to progress, increasing the number of plaques on the skin.

After 6-8 weeks the disease will pass. However, when combing the “medallions”, a bacterial infection can join the lichen. In this case, the doctor may prescribe antibiotics.

Signs of ringworm

The incubation period of the disease lasts from five days to two and a half months. At the end of the incubation period, one or more spots appear on the skin. Usually they have the shape of a circle or oval. Most often, dermatophytes (fungi, "loving the skin") affects the scalp. Hair breaks off at a height of less than one centimeter. If the spots are separate and small, the formed prunesina are clearly visible on the head. If the spot is one (and it can be the size of an adult’s palm), the head appears short-haired. Spots do not bother a sick person: only sometimes he may feel a slight itch.

Spots can affect eyelashes, occur on any part of the body. In this case, they look like oval spots scaly in the middle, surrounded by a towering roller. It is the fungus-affected scales that carry the infection.

Since the course of the disease depends on the localization of the fungus and the condition of the patient, its symptoms may be different. Therefore, doctors do not distinguish the stages of the course of the disease, and types of ringworm.

Superficial Ringworm of the scalp

Scaly spots (one or several at once) appear on the hairy part of the head. Hair at this place at first thin, then break off. The affected skin turns red, small bubbles form on it, gradually turning into yellowish scales. This kind of ringworm delivers not physical, but psychological discomfort. If the disease is not treated, it will recur. In boys - until puberty. In girls, untreated ringworm can become chronic and cause hair loss as an adult.

Superficial Ringworm on Smooth Skin

Externally localized on smooth skin, ringworm is very similar to Gieber's disease or pink lichen. On the skin, the same pink-yellowish or brownish-pink flaky spots are formed. They are surrounded by a bright pink, consisting of bubbles or nodules, a border edged above the skin (a kind of roller). Due to the edging, the affected code appears to be gray.

Giber disease independently passes in two months, and the "hair-cutters" can disturb a person for years. In addition, unlike pink, ringworm is most often (but not necessarily) localized on the face and neck, although it can occur anywhere.

This type of ringworm requires urgent and thorough treatment. In the absence of it, the spots increase, affecting an increasingly large surface of the skin, and the itching becomes stronger. Lack of treatment, especially in girls, leads to the fact that the disease takes a chronic form.

Chronic Ringworm

It is found only in women with impaired functions of the childbearing system or the thyroid gland, who had a normal form in childhood. Most often the skin on the temples and the back of the head is affected. In this case, the nidus is called the “black dot”. It is small, no more than 1 cm, but there may be many such foci. The hair in them breaks, in their place a scar is formed, which constantly flakes off.

In addition to the head, chronic ringworm often affects the hips, elbows, palms and buttocks. They are covered with fuzzy scaly spots, the color of which can vary from pink to blue or brown. A woman may be bothered by itching.

Chronic form is not contagious.

Infiltrative-suppurative or deep ringworm

Its pathogens are transmitted to man only from animals, but begin to multiply in the hair follicles. They begin to fester, the skin around it becomes inflamed. As a result, tumor-like, red, lumpy plaques up to 10 cm in diameter are formed. When opening from them pus follows. As the disease progresses, flaky spots replace the plaque. In this case, general weakness, fever, lethargy, and inflammation of the lymph nodes are added to the symptoms of ordinary ringworm.

This is the most painful kind of lichen ringworm. In men, it can be localized not only in the head, but also in the beard, mustache.

Before starting treatment, the doctor conducts tests in order to determine exactly which pathogen caused the disease. Then comprehensive treatment is performed. It combines the effect of ointments, shampoos, tablets, other antifungal agents.

Treatment can take place approximately according to this scheme.

  1. Local ointments, gels, creams or sprays such as Clotrimazole, Mikoseptin, Terbinafine.
  2. In the morning: iodine treatment. In the evening: treatment with salicylic acid-containing ointment.
  3. Vidal milk. It is prepared in the prescription department and includes six fungus control components.
  4. Inside for 2-3 weeks: Griseofulvin. The doctor can substitute this natural antifungal agent of a narrowly directed action with other drugs capable of fighting the ringworm pathogens Microsporum canis and Trichophyton tonsurans.

In parallel with antifungal drugs, a dermatologist may prescribe immunomodulators and vitamin complexes to boost immunity.

Ringworm is considered cured, if a three-time scraping from the affected area, made on the day of the end of the course, after a week and two months, gave negative results. Otherwise, the treatment must be repeated.

Causes of the disease

Adverse factors that can cause pityriasis versicolor are:

  • Systematic visits to tanning salons.
  • Long stay on the beach or just under the scorching sun.
  • Excessive sweating in the summer.
  • Mental, nervous and physical fatigue.
  • Immune weakening.
  • Licolor versicolor can result from some past diseases: diabetes, Cushing's syndrome, oncology, tuberculosis, or a hormonal imbalance of different etiology.

More often than not, people with overweight, excessive sweating, or oily skin suffer from this variety.

There is an opinion that such an infectious pathology, such as the color lichen, can be inherited. However, some scientists claim that the disease is not infectious, but is transmitted by contact only with a combination of several adverse factors. That is why it is called conditionally infectious.

In order to protect yourself from an unpleasant illness, you should:

  • Use only your own things, clothes, shoes, hygiene items.
  • Do not spend much time on the beaches or in tanning salons.
  • Do not use aggressive gels, shampoos, etc.

You can become infected in the baths, in the common changing rooms, during direct contacts with the patient.

Licolor versicolor has three types (structural):

The disease begins with the fact that a lot of small spots appear on the human body (on any place, including the hairy parts). They can be any color from pink to almost black or be colorless. It is this symptom that makes it possible to call the disease colored or multi-colored. The spots have an irregular shape, but their edges are clearly delineated. The affected skin is slightly flaky, the color of the spots does not change when exposed to the sun. Gradually, if you do not start treatment, the affected area increases, and the spots merge into one, very large. The affected areas do not sunbathe for a long time.

Daveri Disease

Some experts consider this disease to be a type of red pityriasis versicolor affecting the hair part of the head, while others distinguish it as a separate disease.

The causative agent of the disease is not installed. It is only known that the basis of the pathology is the process by which follicular plugs form in the epidermis (outer layer of the skin). The skin around them is moderately inflamed, and the corks themselves are very similar to yellow or white asbestos scales. After a few years or months (if the disease is not treated), they develop into small papules (rash) of red or yellow color, inside of which is gun hair. Papules have a sharp scaly top. If you hold your hand over the damaged skin, the sensation will resemble stroking a grater. Gradually, plaques can move from the scalp to the body, especially in those places where the skin stretches, rubs, sweats. Owls time papules increase, merge, forming red dense plaques and white peeling in the middle. Around them are formed soft "satellites". If the plaques are placed on the palms, then the skin in places of the scales can crack deeply. Externally, plaques are similar to psoriasis, therefore, to establish an accurate diagnosis, laboratory research is required.

Treatment of the disease

The patient is hospitalized only in very severe cases. Usually for the treatment prescribed:

  • Emollient creams with vitamins A, B2, B12, E, etc.
  • Corticosteroids.
  • UV treatments.
  • Sea baths.
  • Complex physiotherapy, sometimes - photochemotherapy.

Despite the fact that the treatment of the disease Devérí can take several years, a complete cure is possible.

Signs of Shingles

The disease begins with a feeling of general malaise, fatigue, subfibril temperature, headaches. In this state, a person may be a few days. Sometimes intestinal disorder joins the general malaise. The unpleasant sensation along the nerve trunks gradually increases, where later rashes will appear. Sluggish onset of the disease gives way to an acute period.

  • The temperature rises sharply to 39 ° -40 °.
  • Increases intoxication common in high temperature: headache, chills, aches, etc.
  • Where the affected nerve is projected onto the skin, pink rashes appear. In the first two or three days they are hardly noticeable and do not exceed half a centimeter in diameter. On the third day, they turn into clearly visible groups of bubbles filled with clear liquid. The bubbles are located on the face along the trigeminal nerve, in the intercostal space, on the genitals or along the nerve trunks of the arms and legs.
  • There is a strong, poorly tolerated burning pain in places of skin formations. She is particularly worried at night.
  • In the affected areas, paresis (weakening of voluntary movements) of the nerves, difficulty of motor functions is observed.
  • Lymph nodes are enlarged.

After a week (approximately) dried bubbles turn into crusts, which later fall off independently after a month. The condition is normalized, however, neuralgic pains can haunt the patient for more than one year.

Shingles can occur differently.

  • The initial rash may not turn into a papule, but regress (disappear). This is an abortive form.
  • The rash can merge into very large blisters filled with a mixture of blood, lymph and pus. This is a bullous form.
  • In the generalized form, the rash spreads not only on the skin, but also on all mucous membranes.

Herpes zoster has such bright and characteristic symptoms that the doctor can make a diagnosis after a visual examination of the patient.

Causative agent of scaly depriving, symptoms

The causative agent is unknown. There are many diverse theories, each of which has its own observations, but to the end, none of the theories have not been fully proven.

Most often red with white bubbles the size of a pinhead appear on the elbows, knees, hair. Gradually they grow into plaques, increase. The pattern of the affected skin becomes similar to a topographic map. The place struck with plaques resembles fish scales, for which the disease got its popular name. Later, the rash can spread to any other skin areas. Primary rash or exacerbation of the disease may be accompanied by severe burning, fever, general malaise.

In the first stage, when the bubbles appear and grow, any damage to the skin (for example, a shot or sunburn) can cause a sharp increase in the rash.

In the next stationary period, the amount of rash does not increase, but the exfoliation sharply increases. In this period, the skin often changes color.

The third stage - the disappearance of external symptoms. The sensation of itching and burning may persist for months. Sometimes psoriasis affects the joints. This complication is called psoriatic arthritis. Patients feel pain in the interphalangeal joints, the sacrum, and the spine. The affected joints swell up, stop moving normally. Lack of treatment can lead to systematic dislocations, joint deformities, and complete disability.

Psoriasis treatment

There are no specific methods for diagnosis today. If blood tests show autoimmune, rheumatic, or inflammatory processes, and there are specific lesions on the skin, the doctor should prescribe a biopsy.

Today, more than 20 psoriasis treatments have been developed, none of which can guarantee a quick and complete cure. Treatment depends on the phase of the disease and the location of the dislocation of the lesions.

  • At the first stage, injections of vitamins, sensitizers or histamine preparations are practiced.
  • At the same time, corticosteroids, sedatives are prescribed.
  • At the stationary stage, injections of staphylococcal antitoxins, autohemotherapy, and ultraviolet light are often recommended.
  • Severe forms can be cured with the help of plasmapheresis, cytostatics.

Currently, experts have learned with the help of various techniques to alleviate the patient’s condition by keeping the disease in the stationary stage.

Symptoms of licking lichen

Despite the huge number of forms of the disease, the main symptoms of the disease are the same.

  • The skin is red, swollen.
  • On it there are small bubbles filled with liquid. Depending on the type of eczema, they can have different shapes and colors.
  • An unbearable itch appears.
  • Bubbles begin to burst, forming scales, deep cracks, multi-colored spots on the skin.

Each type of eczema can have its own symptoms.

  • With true eczema, the skin is affected symmetrically. Bursting bubbles erupt serous fluid. This gave the name of the disease - weeping.
  • Microbial eczema may develop at the site of chronic foci of infection.
  • At the site of injury - paratraumatic.
  • Sometimes a fungus joins eczema, and then peeling increases many times over.
  • On the hands is usually localized dyshidrotic form, which is characterized by strong weeping, burning, intolerable itching.
  • The varicose form develops at the site of trophic disorders and distinguishes the bluish color of damaged skin from others.
  • The seborrheic form with red flaky spots develops where the sebaceous glands pass (in the hair, on the buttocks).

If you comb the damaged skin, then the wounded infection can complicate the course of the disease.

Since eczema can be caused by various factors, from nervous disorders to endocrine disorders, the primary task in treatment is to eliminate the factor that provoked the development of eczema. Treatment should be comprehensive.

  • To relieve allergic manifestations, intravenous and intramuscular injections of potassium, calcium, and sodium preparations are used.
  • Prescribe antihistamines of different generations.
  • The severe form is treated with the help of hormones-corticosteroids, for example, prednisone.
  • To enhance immunity, immunoprotectors, such as decaris, are necessary.
  • General intoxication is removed by hemodez and the use of diuretic drugs.
  • Damaged skin is subject to local treatment with ointments, gels, etc.
  • Often use physiotherapy.

Mandatory treatment condition - adherence to a hypoallergenic diet. Do not contact with any chemicals, water. Any work that could injure the skin should be done with gloves.
