Oral Lichen Planus
| Rosemary5gy
In April 2013 I discovered little white lacy patches inside the cheek in my mouth. I saw the dr. and he said it was Oral Lichen Planus and sent me to a dermatoligist, who prescribed a steroid pills called Soriatane. I took it for a month and I stared peeling skin on my arms and legs, face, palms of my hands and soles of my feet. I quit taking the pills after one month of use. I have HBP and had been on Apo-Triazide 50mg/25mg, or another name is Triamterene/Hydroclorothiazide 50mg/25mg and have been on them for almost 3 years. the sores in my mouth got worse and I was not allowed to eat anything acidy or spicy, no coffee or chocolate. I don't know what else I can do, I am 70 years old and have lost 15 lbs so far.I was 185 lbs, now I am 170 lbs. I am not a smoker or a drinker. Some say gargle with peroxide, some say drink apple cider vinegar with baking soda and water, some say garlic cloves 4 times a day. I am at my wit's end. Please help. Thank you and God bless you.

I just realized I have oral Lichen Planus and my 88 year old mother has had it for quite awhile.
She used dexamethasone Elixir 0.5mg Rinse w 1 teaspoon twice daily . I cannot eat anything spicy and my mouth stings with almost everything.
