About International Oral Lichen Planus Support Group
The International Oral Lichen Planus Support Group addresses concerns with and offers emotional support to individuals and families, serves as a central resource for information, and provides a worldwide referral system for university-based dental schools and treatment facilities where there are professionals knowledgeable about the treatment of oral lichen planus. It serves as a resource for patients, family members, researchers, and practitioners. Oral lichen planus is a disease of unknown origin that occurs more often in women than in men. It is characterized by the appearance of lesions or ulcers on the skin or genitalia or in the mouth. It may be related to an allergic reaction in some cases, and stress may also sometimes play a role in its appearance.
