The study's Primary Objective is to design and validate a grading system for objective and accurate assessment of lichen planopilaris.
- To assess change in symptoms such as pain and itch using a Numeric Rating Scale(NRS) scores and quality of life using the Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI) scores
- To correlate this grading system with patient skin biopsies evaluating disease activity on a microscopic level
- To correlate this grading system with digital global photography and trichoscopy
