Pityriasis lichenoides is a rare skin disorder of unknown etiology, with no known cure. If you have recently received a diagnosis of pityriasis lichenoides chronica (PLC) or pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta (PLEVA), you may be aware that dermatologists are often at a loss with regards to providing advice on the best way to treat, manage or cure this condition. The condition’s rarity makes it tough to figure out what to do; when I received my diagnosis three years ago, my dermatologist advised me that the condition was not likely to affect my general health, but was unable to provide a clear indication of the steps I could take to begin healing.

I started this site to create an informational resource for sufferers of the pityriasis lichenoides (PL) family of skin disorders — including pityriasis lichenoides chronica (PLC) and pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta (PLEVA).  On this page, I share the results of the many lifestyle adjustments and treatments I have tried during three years of struggling to manage my PLC, and invite visitors to share and discuss what has worked for them.
