Leukoplakia Treatment

Leukoplakia is marked by unusual-looking patches inside your mouth. These patches can vary in appearance and may have the following features:

>>white or gray color
>>thick, hard, raised surface
>>hairy (hairy leukoplakia only)
>>red spots (rare)

Many cases of leukoplakia can be prevented with lifestyle changes:

>>Stop smoking or chewing tobacco.
>>Reduce alcohol use.
>>Eat antioxidant-rich foods such as spinach and carrots. Antioxidants may help deactivate irritants that cause patches
