I have used Aloe vera for Lichen Planus. Drink 30 ml of Aloe vera juice every morning on an empty stomach.
Not hear of Whiite Oak for it.
Also, turmeric is of great help. Make turmeric paste. Turmeric and water should be mixed well to make a thick paste. Apply it all over on the affected area. Do this thrice a day. Persistent use is must.
