Oral Lichen Planus Three Year Comparison





Please note: The top photo was taken in 2008 when I had a very bad flare up of Erosive OLP ulcers. I was in bad pain at the time and could barely swallow water. If you ever get like that, pay attention to your water intake so that you don't get dehydrated.
The second photo was taken in January of this year. My OLP was much improved at that time, after having been taking Cellcept for over a year. My mouth was almost completely clear when I went off the Cellcept. After this little bout in January, it cleared up again. I continue to use Clobetasol ointment.

From the time I've been an adult, I've experienced monthly oral ulcers. It was like clockwork because the ulcers always arrived right before my period. The strange thing is that I have been menopausal for 2 years so I can't explain these mysterious ulcers? Three weeks ago, a few oral ulcers appeared & they began to get worse. Several new ulcers appeared, then a bunch more ulcers all over my tongue, under my tongue, under my top lip & under my bottom lip. In addition to the excruciating painful ulcers, I have a low grade fever. It's very difficult to eat, drink, talk, sleep or function. Three years ago, I was diagnosed with Primary Fibromyalgia. That condition is a day at the beach compared to this nightmare! The dentist & oral surgeon refused to help me with this condition. They claimed it was only stress-related. I'm not sure which direction to go, but I wanted to inquire about which specialist is the TOP CHOICE to see?
