Oral LinchenPlanus
May 17, 2006

Hi Doctor, My mother is suffering from oral linchenplanus for past one year. She is taking english medicines and undergoing treatment.But no significant improvment so far. Can you suggest any treatment? And do it has do do anything with HIV?

Response from Dr. Henry

Lichen planus is not generally linked to HIV infection. Topical steroids, antihistamines, topical analgesics and other interventions (often under supervision of a dermatologist) can provide relief. The course is highly variable. KH

when should one quit working?
