I seem to have a rather extreme case of Lichen Planus in my mouth. I have been dealing with this since Dec. I am under the care of a dermatologist and am presently awaiting the results of a biopsy for confirmation. I was given a med to put directly on the sores which seemed to help some but the condition began to affect so many parts of my mouth that the med no longer served to help. Thus I am on no medication for the condition. I do not have it on the skin but suffered a major break-out of eczema; it is under control. I assume something has thrown my immune system out of control. I just read the flu vaccine could be the culprit. Seniors in this area have been r eceiving an extra heavy dose of the vaccine. Do you have more info? I am 83 yrs old and in fair health normally.

Yes. My dentist said I had erosive oral lichen planus Im pretty sure its not cancer but its taken a long time to go away. It started out bad and has over a year subsided to a manageable point. The oral surgeon dr said its an autoimmune issue caused by stress, etc. I had been under stress for awhile. I m in very good health other wise, work out, etc. I hold in my mouth MCT oil twice a day from my holistic Dr, which is a combination coconut and palm oils. I m going for a planned deep cleaning this week. Is there any oral antibiotic or something strong that I could ask my doctor for? I can t really afford a biopsy. Thank You Jeff
