I was trying to quit gutkha since april '13, by reducing the quantity. Finally,I quit successfully quit in end of august' 13. Consumtion of gutkha was very less between april to august (once in 2 to 3 days). I started LYCORED capsules without any doctor prescription which helped me to open my mouth but caused some kind of alergy in my mouth and in throat. I stopped LYCOred and consulted well recognized ENT specialist Surgeon of our area, he diagnosed OSMF, whiteness/blenching in mouth and some effect on Larynx also. He started my treatment with Stancool syrup(two teaspoon thrice a day), an antialergic tablet (hydroxyzine hydrochloride atarax 10 mg - one at night) and anti gasteric capsule (one in the morning). I am also taking Becasule/Zavit daily. Irritation against hot and spicey food, Whiteness on soft palate cheeks and gums is reducing, some area of inner cheeks are softer but bands are still visible in some areas. I am expereincing improvement. I can open my mouth more than 35mm now which was lessthan 28 mm earlier.
I tried to take lycopene from other sources (carrot,tomatoe and beetroot salad), but i felt again acidity and some itching(or allergy) in my mouth.
I am under treatment from last three months. I just want to confirm that the above treatment is sufficient(and standard) and all will be OK after some time ? How long will it take to cure completely ?
