I am a 67 y/o woman in ecellent health except for my diagnosis of Lichen Planus. I am also a Registered Nurse. I had LP for 4 months before I was biopsied. In the week I had to wait for my biopsy results I educated myself on this disease, I immediately opted for alternative therapies vs western meds. Unbelievably after keeping a food journal for just 2 days I had ALL my trggers.. I was almost everything I was drinking. OJ, mineral water, and red wine )the WORST) This makes such good sense. Solid foods are absorbed in the small intestine over a period of time. Alchohol and sugars in driinks or chemicals like aspergane all hit your blood stream immediatley. I went on a two week corse of prednisone which illiminated my initial breakout ; I only drink black coffee and water . I tested this theory twice (had a cocktail) and IMMIEDIATELY had LP sx. I caught it early. Two days on prenisone cleared it up.
Just wanted to share in case it helps anyone else..
