@artist01. Thanks so much for your kind words. Luckily the dermatologist prescribed Magic Mouthwash which has lidocaine. Having thrush and lichen planus in your mouth at the same time is painful and this mouthwash gets rid of the pain while I brush and floss. My thrush is slowly going away but the Nystatin I have to apply 4 times daily makes my teeth extremely sensitive! Magic mouthwash helps me to be able to use toothpaste for sensitive teeth that my oral lichen planus wouldn’t normally allow me to use. I am a hot mess. Sorry to go on and on.
