Lichen planus, use pursane. First, I might use other things such as green tea, white tea, and especially tannic acid.

Hi Ted,

I bought some seeds for purslane and grew them in a pot but didn't get enough to make a difference in the oral lichen planus. Bought some powder from China and only took it one time, I think 1/32 teaspoonful. Is this correct? Do not want to get kidney stones from this. I have tried colloidal silver, oil of oregano, olive leaf extract, Candex, tea tree oil, emu oil, vitamin E, jojoba oil, vegetable glycerin, neem oil, coconut oil, LDN, Alpha lipoid acid, Triamcinolone Acetonide dental paste and any other treatments I read about. Still have it almost 8 or more years. And if you have it in your mouth, you can assume you have it systemically. No need to test further. Is it totally a psychi problem? I am a life long worrier but having this does not make you calm down. I think I got it as a result of the statin drugs and stress at work, possibly with gold inlays as a trigger. What can you take internally for this (auto-immune?) disease?

Hi! I had lichen planus in mouth but it has totally gone now. I didn't use any medicine for it. I realised that good sleep, tension/stress free lifestyle is the best cure for this. But, it is hard to be stress free. Good luck! Thank you.
