Oral lichen planus is an inflammatory condition that affects mucous membranes inside your mouth. It may appear as white, lacy patches; red, swollen tissues; or open sores on any soft tissues of the mouth. These lesions may cause burning, pain or other discomfort.
The disorder occurs when the immune system mounts an attack against cells of the oral mucous membranes. The reason for this is unknown. It cannot be passed from one person to another.
Oral lichen planus is usually a chronic condition that causes little or no symptoms. It usually is diagnosed at a dental exam and verified by an small biopsy.
Treatments are usually undertaken only of the lesions are painful and/or ulcerative. Treatments that suppress the immune system abnormalities, such as topical or systemic steroids may improve more severe lesions and lessen pain.
People with oral lichen planus may also have related lichen planus lesions on the skin, genitals or other parts of the body.
Further information and treatment may be obtained by a board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon. ...Read more
