Hi John,
Thank you. I am currently using toothpaste and mouthwash specifically for sensitive gums, but I do need to check to make certain they do not contain SLS. I ordered auto-immune support lozenges this morning containing echinacea, zinc and vitamine C, which was suggested by someone.
The specialist seems very informative and he was pleased with the results so far, but I would like to get to ground zero as to why this is happening and see if I can remove the stimulus from my life rather than just treating the symptoms which is what I believe we are doing.
The second opinion may be a good direction. Thank you

@microgirl I got OLP 6 years ago. All my research leads me to believe that there are no treatments that work. It can go away spontaneously, but not always. In my case it seemed to become a version of "burning mouth syndrome," which also has no treatments. I have seen top specialists in NYS and Boston. Steroids do work, but they can create other problems. including causing it to return even worse than it started. There are numerous articles on OLP in a government website on orpahan diseases.
