    I have been prescribed a different steroid but it wont be in chemist till Monday.  I also now have a mouth infection.  I will be visiting my dentist urgently tomorrow!  And, I have just been sick with a stomach upset!  All in all, I am a complete wreck right now.  And looming is my first art show of the year on the 10th March.  I really need to be well!  And I seem to be going from bad to worse to 'worserer'!!!

      There is a condition that is called lichen planus that affects the mouth. Soreness, white patches or stripes inside the cheeks.lots of women have both planus and sclerosis. Planus is often mistaken for sclerosis. You should maybe mention this to your dentist as you may not have an infection but this condition also. You sound like you are very nervous about your art show. I would be too. Where abouts are you - UK or elsewhere?

      Ah! another artist.....stress is terrible for LS, it is possible you have got yourself stressed out preparing for your show!  

      I have been where you are now and it is very stressful, in fact, years ago I started smoking while I was preparing for a show, its difficult.,
