Topical steroid therapy is considered the first line of treatment for Oral Inflammatory Ulcerative Diseases with current treatment regimens requiring multiple application or rinses daily. Using Mucolox™ as a vehicle to deliver topical dexamethasone to the oral mucosa has the potential to effectively prolong contact time between the medication. The primary objective of this study is to determine the clinical efficacy and tolerability of compound dexamethasone at 0.5 mg/5 mL in Mucolox™ for the treatment of Oral Inflammatory Ulcerative Diseases as measured by a reduction in oral symptoms between patients treated with compounded dexamethasone 0.5mg/5ml solution in Mucolox™ (group A) and patients treated with topical commercial dexamethasone 0.5mg/5ml solution only (group B). and mucosa, leading to improved clinical outcomes due to the need for less frequent application.
