I have lichen amyloidosis. This started off as itching all over my body when I was 11 years old. The constant itching lead to this condition which is thickening of the skin and also hyper pigmentation (too much pigment - darker skin). I am a female of 43 years old and the condition was not treated as I did not apply the steroids when I was younger. I have over the past 20 years wanted to wear sleeveless/backless clothes but cannot. The condition affects the tops of my arms, back, neck and forehead. I lose confidence because of the condition. Is there any treatment that anyone is aware of or somebody who can help me. I am now taking an antihistamine to break the itch cycle. My nhs dermatologist has prescribed me kligmans formula (hydroquine 4%) for my forehead and also retin a. The hyper pigmentation is not so dark but it is slow working and i have been using it coming upto 1 year. I am concerned about the side effects of the cream because of longterm use. He only prescribes steroids for the rest of the body which I wont use because it is such a large area. Please please help if you can. Also i don't know if this is relevant of this condition but i have a white furry tongue. Thanks
