my mouth feels like it’s on fire most of the time. When eating out, people will say “oh, it’s not spicey “. Does this happen to you. I’m continuing to have ulcers on the underside and side of my tongue. Any suggestions?  I’ve tried steroid gel, mouthwashes, lidocaine, etc. 

thank you

    Hi purl45, I don't have OPL but LP, but If I can make one suggestion to you that would help with your OLP that is start a probiotics regmine. I'm currently on two a day, one in the morning and one in the evening with a meal. Ever since I started the probiotics my LP has gradually disappeared. Today I am symptom free and I'm approaching 2 years of no breakouts.

    I dont know if it would help but Colgate Peroxal mouth wash my help. The active ingredient is hydrogen peroxide and promotes healing.
