First Stages of More than Lace


Upon request, I am posting some pictures of the early onset of the erosive part of my oral lichen planus from 2004.


The picture above shows the right side of the tongue far back with erosive patches spreading to underside.




Prior to this, I only had some white lacey markings on the inside of the cheeks.


As I posted in April 2004, when my mouth was looking like this, it appeared as if I had previously had a tongue piercing. Which I did not. The hold just appeared by itself, as if someone had taken a knife to it.


I put a cloth on my tongue in order to pull it out a bit further, like doctors do,  to show beneath where there are more markings.


Even though the  whole top of the tongue and the insides of the mouth were affected, the left side and underside of the tongue were not affected.


The tongue is swollen and speech is more garbled, but not noticeably.


Always seek the advice and supervision of a qualified licensed medical professional!
