Good evening! I'm sorry your MMP is flaring up right now. Which of your doctors is treating you for it? For severe cases (which it sounds like you may be a severe case), usually some oral medications are necessary, including steroids, antimetabolites, immunosuppressant drugs, or alkylating drugs. This is a complicated treatment and should be handled by a specialist, like a periodontist or a specialist in a stomatology clinic. Have you been referred to either of these specialists already?

As far as an over-the-counter aid, it sounds like you are already doing all that you can. I think it's time to be a little more aggressive in your treatment.

Sincerely,

Dr. Lara

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
