Avatar n tn My mouth has these really hurtful ulcers, my throat and toncils are painful and swollen and my neck glands are so painful. I went to the doctor and was neg. for strep. I got some antibiotics and some viral medicine but it hasnt been getting any better. all i have been able to eat is jello and popcicles. How long did it take to go away? what did you take or do?
Avatar f tn My son is 20 years old and for years he has suffered with constant mouth ulcers. His dental hygiene is top in his priorities and always has been. Lately over the last 6 months, maybe more they are getting more frequent. He must has them all the time now maybe a week reprieve. He has one now that is on the thing at the back of your throat that hangs down and its huge, he is always in pain, he could have 2,3, maybe more at one time. but this is first time on that part of the throat..
1637775 tn?1300841064 I'm curious if anyone can help me. Here's the scenario.... Last Saturday I went to a Halloween party...drank and drank and drank...didn't get much sleep because my wife and I had to get up with our 4 kids bright and early Sunday. Went to work Monday and dealt with a nice and stressful day. Came home, was playing with my kids and had my dog slam her head into my chin from beneath which caused me to violently bite my tounge. A gash on either side.
Avatar f tn Went on anti depressants. Referred to gastrology (no ideas) and ear, nose and throat, the latter suggested B12 deficiency and she was given dissolvable b12 tablets. These worked and the ulcers improved for a while. A few months later they came back worse. Had a blood test and was again told anaemia despite the fact that she's taking iron. The Doctor said it wasn't a B12 deficiency. Sorry about all of the details, just thought I should give an overall picture.
Avatar n tn My 15 year old daughter frequently gets mouth ulcers which causes her great discomfort and pain. Has anyone else been through this and have they any advice on possible causes?
Avatar m tn The persisting mouth ulcers could sometimes be due to systemic causes like pemphigus. Pemphigus is an autoimmune disorder in which your antibodies attack healthy cells in your skin and mouth, causing blisters and sores. Autoantibody tests can help detect this. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I agree with AnnieBrooke - you need to be seen by a different doctor! And preferably an ear, nose and throat doc! When you have a throat so sore that you can barely swallow, can't eat at all and have ulcers on your tonsils, SOMETHING definitely needs to be done! Did your doc even bother to do a strep test or anything? Strep throat can also cause ulcers in the throat and mouth and strep is definitely something that neeeds to be treated with antibiotics.
Avatar n tn t know how long they have been there for, but my throat had been hurting for about 2 weeks and i looked in my mouth and saw white lesions and ulcers in my mouth. The first thing i did was go to the doctor, because i do have a boyfriend and you never know right? The doctor told me it was herpes, and did a swab of the infected area.
Avatar f tn A week or two later, I left for several months on training and kept in touch with my boyfriend. I started getting severe mouth ulcers all over my mouth, and over the next month or so they became unbearable. I would have at least 5 in my mouth at any given time - under the tongue, below and on the tongue, all over the soft palate and inside the cheeks. I would get a new one every day or so. Eventually (few months later) I would have them on my throat as well.
Avatar n tn The only forms of fruit I appear to be able to eat without getting mouth ulcers and a burnt, white, tongue are cooked apples or pears in small quantities with sugar. I can also eat bananas, and moderate quantities of cooked tomatoes. In recent years, I've started to develop intolerance to other foods. I either develop mouth/throat ulcers or a white, burnt tongue when I have the following: nuts, certain spices, bitter vegetables (endives...).
Avatar f tn Hi all, back at the beginning of April this year I had a sore throat, I looked and saw I had a few ulcers/blisters in the back of my throat, I have never had these before, and they weren't there previous to that, I had just come off Omeprazole which I had been taking for acid reflux, and had been on them for 9 weeks.I had also just come off Yasmin contraceptive pill that i had been taking for around 8 years.
Avatar f tn This time I went to the doctor because the back of my throat also had ulcers. The doctor swabbed one of the ulcers and said she was gonna send it to be tested for herpes and for shingles. She said if they didnt call then the tests were negative. So I didn't get a call, the ulcers slowly went away, and I was relieved. However, in the past week and a bit the ulcers have been reappearing, and the glands in my neck are swollen and painful.
Avatar m tn Don't worry. I have mouse ulcers all the time. Well, not all the time. Sometime one in 3 months, sometime 3 in month. Doctors don't know actualy what causes this condition. They beleive it can be caused by stress and/or injury (like if you have habit to byte your lips), not enough sleep, poor food intake. When all this thing You put together (stress + injury + lack of goog sleep + poor food) you get low imunity which cause mouse ulcers. I have this ulcers since my childhood.
Avatar f tn So over the past few months I have been having a lot of problems with ulcers near my throat and they really hurt! I've been getting more generalized mouth ulcers all over, but the worst big nasty ones keep appearing on my soft palate next to the uvula on either side. I keep getting multiple ones on my tonsils and they really hurt! I tend to feel sick when I get them and always think I'm coming down with strep throat again until I look and see the ulcers.
Avatar f tn There are many causes for mouth and tongue ulcers. If you want to know why YOU have them, visit your doctor and ask. HIV is about the least likely thing on the list of things that can commonly cause mouth ulcers.

Avatar n tn I did not suspect oral thrush, but are there other types of mouth ulcers and conditions associated with seroconversion? The second link to the medical picture I posted does not look like thrush either, that's more my concern.
Avatar n tn My results do run consistent with the Aphthous ulcers (which I had sent you information before), and now a possible second, unexplainable mouth disease: Oral Lichen Planus (related to Ulcerative Lichen Planus, which affects the feet and legs, mostly): I am experimenting with various drugs right now, and still continuning my Famcyclovir (for herpes) and Kumasaka's solution (with mild steroids).
Avatar m tn Dear Dr.Anitha, thank you so Much For your Reply & Rich Answer, i went already to a number of ENT , the last 2 of them say i should remove my tonsils , if i want to get ride of the swollen lymph nodes & the sore throat , then this is the solution, what i'm worry about is , i have my tonsils for my whole life , why just now it come chronic ( also could it be the reason for the swollen lymph nodes , sore throat & mouth ulcers .
Avatar n tn I used a medicated mouthwash for a couple of weeks and this dissapeared but the ulcers have not. Please help all the info i have found about prolonged mouth ulcers point to HIV or mouth cancer but surely after so long i would have other symptoms. If i have been exposed to HIV in my past it would be at least 10 years ago.
Avatar n tn After the 10days I still had a sore throat that feels like an ulcer down my throat, and I also still had about 10 mouth ulcers as well as swollen gums. I went to my Internal MD and he put me on Medrol dose pack and Levaquin. This initially helped w/ the mouth ulcers but the one down my throat got much worse. I was given a Celestone inj and put on Orapred. Also taking Pepsid. Throat neg for strep and mouth ulcers neg for Herpes. This helped for about 3 days but then the pain has come back.
Avatar f tn Apply chlorhexidine gel or any other oral anti septic gel you can find twice daily on your mouth ulcers and leave it on for 2 mins and then do warm salt water gargles. Drink or eat half hour after application. Take OTC multivitamins rich in riboflavin to counter the mouth ulcers. If it still persists consult your dentist. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Welcome to our Forum. The ulcers you describe are not related to your sexual contact 4 months ago. The only STD that might cause the sort of recurring ulcers that you describe is herpes and your symptoms do not fit with HSV.
