I've been dianosed with Oral Lichen Planus for about 2 years now. It mostly affects the side of my tongue. With severe flareups, it is difficult to even speak and forget about eating ANYTHING, even bread, because it causes pain and irritation. We have not been able to pinpoint what caused it. I have been using Dexamethasone oral rinse to treat it. In the beginning it eventually lessened symptoms. With this current flare up, there seems to be no relief. Can ANYONE suggest something PLEASE??????
