Lichen planus oral steroid treatment

Reassurance that the condition is benign, elimination of precipitating factors and improving oral hygiene are considered initial management for symptomatic OLP, and these measures are reported to be useful. [37] Treatment usually involves topical corticosteroids (such as betamethasone , clobetasol , dexamethasone , and triamcinolone ) and analgesics , or if these are ineffective and the condition is severe, the systemic corticosteroids may be used. Calcineurin inhibitors (such as pimecrolimus , tacrolimus or cyclosporin ) are sometimes used. [37]
