Lichen Planus is a condition that can cause swelling and irritation in the skin, hair, nails and mucous membranes. On the skin, lichen planus usually appears as purplish, itchy, flat bumps that develop over several weeks. In the mouth, vagina and other areas covered by a mucous membrane, lichen planus forms lacy white patches, sometimes with painful sores.
Ganga, a resident of Anme village in Kota, was suffering from the same in her skin all over her body. She complained of hair loss and painful sores in her mouth. After the first diagnosis at the Wockhardt Foundation- THF Mobile Medical Unit in Kota, she was given free of cost medication and counselling. Her condition is monitored regularly by the doctor and is presently under control.

64 years old Mrs. Rosathie has been visiting the Wockhardt Foundation- BPCL Mobile Medical van for the past 3 months regularly. She is suffering from Hypertension and General fatigue. Financial and social constraints have always hindered her attempts to avail quality health care check-up at private health care institutions.
Ever since the van was introduced in her village, the patient has never missed a visit. Her health has improved significantly due to regular free of cost diagnosis, medication and counselling provided by the van Doctor and his team. She thanks the MMU team for their effort and hopes this noble initiative continues.
