    No need to be worried. Many of us are fighting the same disease. I can't believe there are so many creams and lubricants to use inside the mouth and many, many different kinds of tablets too. I find the tablets work the best. I have used Cellcept and also Plaquenil.  They both work on Oral Lichen Planus, but I don't like the side effects of the Cellcept so I got my doctor to change my prescription.

    The best doctor to see is a dermatologist. I saw an ENT and a dentist and neither one of them knew how to treat OLP. 

    What country are you from? I detect a different dialect.

    I'm not much of a guide i'm afraid I feel like I have not received very good care, My dentis gave me a gel then my ENT thought it is caused by dental work so I went to a dematologist who is sending me to a specialist on Sept 11 to have a dental panel allergy test done and she gave me another gel desoximetasone. 

    Mine started out as white rough spots but are now red and white and a lot worse and painful. No one seems worried so I know what you mean about being scared. I don't think any of my doctors know what they are doing

    Just a bit more information - Mine was diagnosed by a dermatologist by doing a lip biopsy. The lab confirmed that it was Oral Lichen Planus.
