I ain't Lichen this!

  I have confirmed with my doctor yesterday that I have Lichen Planus.  It got the name because it looks like the Lichen you see on trees or stones, I don't have that kind because I didn't eat a baseball bat or something.
  This is an auto immune disease that can be treated by not cured; it is not life threatening.  It can be painful or maybe itchy.  It is in my mouth and on my neck and affects two fingernails.  I will receive a medication the apply to my mouth.  I may use an over the counter gel on my neck - itches like the dickens.  Anyway; I'm not Lichen it.
