If my vaginal lichen planus does not improve (I was taken off the topical steroid I was using, Triamcinolone, as it began burning after almost 9 years
of use.) my doctor has suggested Plaqenil as a "cure". I'm hesitant to use it mainly because it can cause retinal eye damage in a small number of cases.
Before that step she wants me to take prednisone for a number of days to see if that can knock off the symptoms, and then
have me go back to Triamcinolone.
I would appreciate any comments, especially from anyone who has knowledge about plaquenil.
