Lichen striatus is a skin condition that appears in infants and children between the ages of 6 months and 14 years old. The lesions associated with the condition look like flesh-colored papules that are lighter than the surrounding skin (hypopigmented). They erupt in a linear pattern, sometimes extending the entire length of the affected limb. The condition can also affect the nails.
