Summary: A master equation for the reduced density matrix of the microcavity polaritons coupled with the reservoir of high energy excitons is derived. It is allowed both the polaritons and the excitons to be self-interacting systems. Long time asymptotic properties of the polariton population is studied in the whole range of the reservoir temperatures and the corresponding decoherence effects are reported.
