Oral Lichen Planus After Pfizer Covid Vaccines?

@mskatrina12 Hello Kathy. Thankyou for that hopeful tip for we suffering OLP victims. I've had mine since December 2020 and 2 or 3 doctors have tried EVERYTHING. But I hadn't been to my Vet yet! Lol.
I developed Giant Cell Arteritis in March, 2019, lost the vision in my right eye, and had massive doses of Prednisone. Was finally prescribed Actemra , an immunosuppressant developed specifically for GCA. I was on weekly Actemra injections for one year, but am now getting injections every two weeks. It's vastly easier on my body than Prednisone was.
I'm sure going to suggest Triamcinolone Paste for my painful OLP at my next doctor consult!
I presently live at an Assisted Living seniors' residence but am transferring next Wednesday, Dec. 22nd, to a Long Term Care facility with lots of medical care, so I'll start there with your experience once I get settled. Hope is on the horizon!
Warmest wishes, Laurie

Good luck, Laurie! I hope the Triamcinolone Paste helps you! It seems like different meds work for different people………It's been 13 days since I took my last Prednisone, and I keep expecting the mouth ulcers to come back in full force. (So far, so good!) I'm still using the Triamcinolone Paste, but I don't know if it can be used long term or not — I'll have to find out. Seems like this whole thing is just a lot of trial & error!
Take care!
Kathy
