It's No Wonder Why

An article I read today regarding Lichen Planus, which helps me to understand why most clinicians do not think OLP is all that much of a problem.

"Pain and burning sensation have been associated with the erosive form of oral lichen planus. Nevertheless, the lesions can also be asymptomatic. In 15% to 30% of the patients with lichen planus, oral lesions can be the sole manifestation of the disease"
