At Life Force, we have treated even Oral Surgeon having Oral Lichen Planus.

Doctors of many specialties have been treated at Life Force for various diseases

Lichen Planus can affect skin, mouth, genitals, nails and scalp.

The duration of treatment may depend on the extent of the disease. Lichen Planus only on the skin is easier to treat than one on skin + mouth + genitals.

It is rare that Lichen Planus may turn into Cancer.

Patients with Oral Lichen Planus may be suggested biopsy if the lesions are resistant to treat.

If you suppress Lichen Planus by cortisone, you are likely to have more severe Lichen Planus.

It can spread from skin to mouth and genitals. This observation is based on Dr Shah’s extensive experience

Homeopathic Treatment for Oral Lichen Planus

 

Oral Lichen Planus is a chronic inflammatory, a non-infectious disease that causes lesions on the buccal mucosa, tongue and/or gums. It affects approximately 1-2% of the general adult population. Although oral Lichen Planus predominantly occurs in adults older than 40 years, younger adults and children can also be affected. Lichen Planus may affect either skin or mouth or genitals or the nails; or in any combination of two or more. In a large study at Life Force, we have not come across many cases of children having oral Lichen Planus.

Symptoms of Oral Lichen Planus

  • Generally, the onset of oral Lichen Planus is insidious and patients are unaware of its commencement. Usually, the medical or dental practitioner identifies the clinical changes in the oral mucosa on routine examination.
  • Common symptoms include a sensation of roughness in the lining of the mouth, sensitivity to hot or spicy foods, soreness of oral mucosa and gums, red or white patches on the oral mucosa and gums, or oral ulcerations.
  • The lesions of oral Lichen Planus are usually bilateral.
  • Oral Lichen Planus lesions may be associated with patchy brown melanin (pigment) deposits in the oral mucosa.
