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.
