@artist01. That’s an awesome idea! I’ve used that for canker sores too and it works. Why didn’t I think of that! Isn’t the clobestrals (mouth, skin) supposed to thin your skin? Are they steroids? Thanks so much for taking the time for listening and suggesting something! Jen

@bustrbrwn22 Hi Jen. Yes, Clobetasol is a steroid, and that's why I can only use it sparingly once a day. When my pharmacist read the prescription, she actually phoned my ENT Specialist to make sure he really wanted me to use it inside of my mouth. She had never filled a Clobetasol prescription for inside the mouth. I've read medical documentation on lichen planus that actually recommends Clobetasol though, so I didn't worry too much. The pharmacist told me to try not to swallow any spit that contains it, but I'm finding I don't have any excess spit after applying it. My ENT doctor's label says to apply to mouth sores once a day "if painful", but of course we know it's ALWAYS painful. Lol. I rinse with salt and water before both the Orabase Paste or the Clobetasol just to promote healing of the sores under the application. Laurie
