The complexity of oral lichen planus is that we do not know the exact cause. I request you to look at alternative authentic indian medicine(Ayurvedic). To my knowledge many patients have benefited from it.

There is no permanent cure for lichen planus (just like diabetes), but the symptoms can be controlled drastically by the use of appropriate topical medications..... but those medications are started only after a confirmation with the biopsy..... if you have not undergone a biopsy first, get that procedure done so that the steroid appointments can be started for you....
Regards.....
