I always prefer local application of steroids. Try crushing the tablet to a powder form with a spoon and mix with glycerine. Apply very gently to the affected area, but do not rub. Do this at least 3 times a day. You will be relieved of your problem, I'm sure.

Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

Yes you can get marry, not a problem, Try to get your mucositis under control with medication and slowly taper steroid level.

Whysolone can be taken during pregnancy. However we try to prescribe lower doses of it as steroids has increased risk of weight gain, hypertension and diabetes , which can cause adverse effects on fetal growth.
With lower doses we can continue pregnancy.

Dapsone is not preffered during pregnancy, as there are no know studies for its saftey during pregnancy.
Hope this answered your question.
Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries or doubts and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wish you good health. Take care.
