One RCT compared 0-1% fluocinolone acetonide with 0-1% triamcinolone acetonide, four applications per day for 4 weeks, to treat oral LP in 40 patients with erosive (18 cases) or atrophic (22 cases) LP.25 The efficacy was based on the reduction of the surface of lesions. Fluocinolone was found to be more effective, with 13 of 19 patients cured compared with eight of 19 treated with triamcinolone. After a 1 year follow up, only two patients in the fluocinolone group remained completely cured.
