In brief: Check internet

There are some treatment for outbreaks of lichen planis but most are to be prescribed by doctor. You can use a simple numbing gel, rinse with warm salt water(mouthwash would be to harsh due to alcohol), use aloe vera on lesions or lips.
You should look at baylor university. They have a clinic specific for this disorder. They also have a great support group for questions. You are not alone.
