    frequent mouth and inside of lip sores

    For the past couple weeks, I've had recurring painful small sores right on the inside of my lips and a couple on my tongue. It started with one that had my lip swollen and I assumed it was an allergic reaction but couldn't figure out what it was. I currently have about 4 of them. I've had canker sores in the past and these are similar but I'm not sure if that's what it is or not. Does anyone have any suggestions on treatment or prevention of more? Brushing my teeth and using mouthwash....

    Please help

    I'm not quite sure why my throat looks like this, there's a small white dot in the side of my mouth towards the back and there are huge lumps in the back that have gotten bigger over time I've talked to doctors and they don't know what it is, I've had it for many months and they have gotten bigger over time. Also for a while (you can't tell in this picture from what I have eaten) but I have had a white tounge and bad breathe at the back of my throat

  • Please Help

    I have had an extremely dry mouth for about two months now, accompanied by swollen papillae, frequent mucus, slight difficulty swallowing and what looks like oral thrush. After a visit to the doctor I was told it was not thrush and not to worry. A couple of days ago I looked at the back of my throat and I noticed bumps. Can anyone tell me what this looks like? ( I had a tonsillectomy when I was 2 btw ) Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    Aspirin and tooth decay reversal

    Today BBC came out with an article that says aspirin can reverse tooth decay. Is this true? What if you take Tylenol? What information does WebMD as an organization have about this topic? It would be really great news if this is true. I understand there are alot of hoaxes about tooth decay reversal. But the concept is soo interesting. Does anyone have any more info? Thx

    White bump behind wisdom tooth

    Recently I had a infection. My gum behind my wisdom tooth was very sore. I also had a sore throat only on that side and ear pain. My doctor prescribed me augmentin and had me follow up with my dentist. My dentist thought I may have gotten food stuck behind the tooth and that caused the infection he cleaned it out and told me to continue taking my antibiotics. 4 days or so later I found this white bump growing where the pain had been. It has only been 2 days since I've noticed it. I have attached....

    3 Canker Sores within 2 Months, along with one swollen lymph node?

    Hello, I am 16 years old and recently (since about July 4, and it is now August 23) I have been having canker sores much more frequently than usual. Typically I would get one just a couple times a year. Also, the lymph node on the left side of my neck has been swollen and quite painful to the touch since around the time the canker sores began happening and seems to get even worse when I do have a sore in my mouth. Each new sore seems to be getting larger than the one before as well. Can anyone tell....

    Dental crown fell out

    I wanted to enquire about a dental crown issue. I had a root canal treatment 10 months back since one of my teeth was in a pretty bad condition and was fitted with a ceramic crown on the tooth. Today the crown came out along with a bit of the cement that was holding the crown. The gutta-percha root that was installed after the treatment is still intact and I am not feeling any pain. But the cavity that was created by removing the decayed part of the tooth is now wide open. I wanted to know about....

    Jaw pain...wisdom tooth maybe???

    A few days ago i noticed i developed a canker sore right where my gums and cheek meet at the top of my mouth. A day or 2 later i noticed when i push on my gums (above where your wisdom tooth should be) it was hurting. Now its been 2 days and my jaw is in so much pain and i have minor swelling on my cheek. It mainly hurts on my top jaw and right where my top and bottom jaw meet. I cant feel a tooth poking through yet. However compared to the other side it definitely feels more tapered. I never have....
