Successful Treatment of Erosive Lichen Planus
I came across this medical article called, Successful Treatment of Erosive Lichen Planus With Topical Tacrolimus
It was co-published by researchers through Northwestern University Medical School and Mayo Clinic
There was a patient who had Oral Lichen Planus but also had some other diseases that made treating her with steroids not a good idea, so they tried out Tacrolimus on her and after a year she had good results.
I didn't have such good results with the Tacrolimus. For me, it intensified the burning sensations in my mouth the instant I used it, so I was reluctant to use it long enough to get good results. I'm am sure everyone has their own experience.
