      is that diflican mouthwash? And does it contain lidocaine? I'm allergic to it. And it seems itis the only thing prescribed for the pain. I am having a huge flare and think I am leaving regular lichen planus and going into erosive now. My whole right side of my mouth is inflamed. I have an appt with a dermatologist on Aug 8th.

      No it's called Difflam oral rinse. It's got benzydamine hydrochloride and says for the relief of pain and inflammation in the throat and mouth. I was prescribed it by the hospital for use when it ulcerates and it does help

      Thanks Lauren ,about to go and buy a Diflam spray .Any form of pain relief will be a bonus.

      This is a real horrible condition with no cure totally depressing.
