    Mouth & lip sores

    Hi all. For several months, I have been fighting what various medical people have referred to as Thrush, a yeast or fungi infection. I have sores in my mouth and inside my lips, which also have cracked open and bleed at the corners. It is painful to eat or drink anything too hot or too cold and, of course, anything acidic or spicy is out. My derm doctor recently diagnosed my condition as Lichen Planus, which is a "common" condition which affects 1 percent of the population (lucky me!) Apparently, it is an autoimmume disorder, brought on by physical & emotional stress. That is understandable, as over the last six months I have had 23 doctor visits/exams, and 15 medical procedures, two of which were surgerys to remove a cancerous tumor. I guess my body is not a happy camper and is fighting itself.
