Patient has lichen planus orally complains unilateral numbness of lip and tongue on the more effected side. I recently diagnosed Candida in that area and prescribed Mycelex troches. Resolved in 3 weeks. Then saw the pathognomoic picture of lichen in multiple areas. Pat feels better. I am now inquiring to confirm the numbness which remains as part of the lichen picture and its mode of expression. Thanks: Johnt Tortora D.D.S.
