I have 4 autoimmune skin diseases and recently the biopsy results showed positive for LPP. I also have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and sjorgen's syndrome. I am thinking making I have a Mast Cell colection of diseases. Has anyone else been thinking about this? I also have iron deficiency anemia that gets really bad.
I’ve had lichen planus on my gums. A dentist gave me injections (wish I knew the name … I think it was some sort of steroid) in my mouth which cleared it, as well as the psoriasis all over my scalp and body, within a week but the effect lasted only a few months so I went back to her and asked for another set of injections. She told me this was not a permanent solution and referred me to a dermatologist who put me on Methotrexate which also cleared my lichen planus and psoriasis eventually, till I reduced the dosage. Long story … but going back to the lichen planus, in my case staying off mushrooms has helped. Any time I eat mushrooms- even have a lick of mushroom gravy – my gums flare up.
