Thanks for the query,

You are taking a correct medication,

The problem with LPP spots is that they are deep.

It is very difficult to remove them just with topical creams.

You can go for chemical peels,

But even in this you must be cautious,

Peels can sometime aggravate lpp.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis and treatment.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.

Wishing you a good health.
Thank you
