Sounds like you have Lichen Planus of the skin. If your surgeon cannot help you ( and he certainly should try) try your primary doctor. If not Perhaps a skin doctor ( dermatologist) As for you mouth.. apparently you may have Oral Lichen , I have had both as well. The oral Lichen Planus I have is still bugging me and of course has flares that is very painful. I know how you feel. I have been seeing a Dental Pathologist at a nearby college. She has been helping me to relieve some of the pain and redness. I am taking a gel called Fluocinomide 0.5% gel and I use it 2 x s day. I also have Lozenges called Clotrimazole 10MG which I let melt in my mouth 4 xs a day. I use only Biotene Toothpaste ( gentle mint only it has a green bottom) I would advice you to see your immediate doctors or write to WEB MD on the net. There is a group called Oral Lichen Planus. I wish I could help you more. I can only say a prayer for your suffering. As we all do. OLP does not go away anytime soon. It will come and go perhaps with flares,. Do be careful what you eat and keep a diary of what bothers you most. I find spicy, overly hot, like soup. coffee too hot. A lot of fruits I love I cannot eat anymore. Good luck and blessing coming your way. Hang in there. It can get better.
