Hi. My son was diagnosed with OLP when he was 8..... But his mouth ulcers started when he was 3! He's 10 now. He has good weeks and he has Horrible weeks. No one has been able to help us relieve his pain. We do have some meds prescribed but none are miracle drugs (I know that doesn't exist. . I just wish it did). The medicine prescribed to him is Methotrexate 2.5 mg tablet - 6 at a time once a week. Also he's to take folic acid with this med. He's not started this yet because he must have blood work done routinely since there is a chance this med will effect his liver .... And he's terrified of needles. He uses Chloroseptic mouth spray very often for the pain. He misses school very often. He sometimes has "mystery fevers" and feels just awful inside. He gets bad headaches. I read on one thread that someone mentioned an OTC med for thrush and an enzyme for candida. I think I might try that for him. Does anyone have any other suggestions for me? My sweet boy is in pain and has been for so long and I'm worried that his childhood is being negatively impacted by all these mouth ulcers.
