May have given me oral lichen planus, which can be caused by an allergic reaction to medication, but the cause can be very difficult to pinpoint. Initial outbreak seemed to have stabilized, until I used the benzonatate again. I now have new lesions. F 52 10 days

BENZONATATE  (BENZONATATE):  This medication is used to treat coughs caused by the common cold and other breathing problems (e.g., pneumonia, bronchitis, emphysema, asthma). It works by reducing the reflex in the lungs that causes the urge to cough. Use of this medication is not recommended in children younger than 10 years. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
