Hello to healthcare magic,

Oral submucous fibrosis is a disease that can be cured only in its early stages its moderate or severe stages are incurable. However treatment consists of steroids, lycopene (oral nutritional supplement), pentoxifylline, hyaluronidase, extracts from placenta and IFN-gamma (Interferon gamma).
