Q.

Oral Lichen Planus

Hi Doc I have been diagnosed with Oral Lichen Planus and have been given Synalar Gel to rum into my mouth 4 times a day. Is it ok for internal use as the important information suggests its shouldn't be taken internally?

Unless your doctor has specifically told you to use it inside the mouth I would advise against it. See info below:

  • "Avoid getting the medicine in the eyes, or in contact with the inside of the mouth or nose. Rinse with cold water if accidental contact occurs."
