lichen planus in the mouth... ? anyone
Husband was diagnosed by biopsy last year by an oral surgeon as having lichen planus on the inside of his mouth. He has had soreness on the inside of his cheek when he ate spicy foods ... (like his dear chili!)& goes for a check up every three months now. If it gets worse he may have to have surgery to remove the lesions as they can become malignant he was told.
Has anyone had this autoimmune mouth problem & -if so- what have you had done for it? We were told there was no known cause (not his addiction for HOT chili!) or cure for it so we are quite anxious!
