throat

Avatar m tn After a bout of Strep and mono (though I will add that the sore throat was NOT severe in either cases oddly enough, I was swallowing fine and with relatively no pain, just slight irritation), I had noticed my throat seemed very "beat up" per se. Here is a current image of my mouth: http://i27.tinypic.com/2r5wyac.jpg Notice the seemingly cluster of bumps on the back wall, and overall "redness?" It's weird to me since I have absolutely NO pain, discomfort, or anything.

Avatar m tn After a few days and more pain and difficulty swallowing, I looked at my throat. I had about 10 ulcers on the back part of the roof of my mouth. They looked like canker sores to me and went away after about 7-10 days of using magic pink mouth wash. At this time I noticed a bump in the center of the top of my tounge. This bump initially looked like a blood blister. It is red with purple in it. It is a little smaller than the top part of a pencil eraser (width)and does not stick up very high.
Avatar n tn Do you have dry mouth? If so, it may be causing some buildup of food since you don't generate enough saliva to create a bolus (ball) to swallow and its sticking all over your mouth. Various kinds of medications and diseases can cause dry mouth. You may want to see your dentist to see if there's a possibility this is causing it.
Avatar m tn on the back of my tongue, these seemed to appear after taking the Nystatine mouth wash. Also the very back of my throat is dark red and sore, and it feels like my throat is rough and dry, and like something is stuck in there. Also my neck seems to be a little sore when I turn my head to the far left or right. When I try to sleep, I am always hot, and only sleep with a bed sheet on me.... and I also have a hard time getting a good night's sleep without sleep aids. Any ideas???
Avatar n tn i also have like a white line on the cheeks and on the side of my tongue. i have seen a ent doctor in march for sinus problems and he said that they are not blocked and nothing wrong with them according to the scan. i need some advice and help because my doctor doen't think it's serious.
Avatar m tn ok my throat has been weird for like a couple of weeks now, i think its just normal but now the roof of my mouth burns and right under this one tooth there is this spot of pain on my gums. it hurts when i rub it and ive had it for about two days.
628151 tn?1224801643 I am a 23 year old male from the US and have had no previous problems with my mouth before now. Never had braces or even a cavity so all this is very strange to me. I have had my Wisdom Teeth removed but I still have my Tonsils so here is the story... About 2 months ago I noticed a few taste buds near the back of my tongue had grown in size and began to hurt.
974371 tn?1424653129 I am beginning to think that this is not necessarily an ENT issue but has actually something to do with the *tissue* of my mouth and throat. My tongue, palate and throat are mostly on the dry side, add to that a feeling of something stuck in my throat (more like a wad of mucus feeling), but my mouth and palate feel not only dry but like I have a mouth full of paste and absolutely nothing I use or do alleviates this problem. It is so uncomfortable and it does cause me anxiety.
Avatar m tn Stomatitis is an inflammation of the mucous lining of any of the structures in the mouth and Irritation and fissuring in the corners of the lips is termed angular stomatitis. Most common causes are iron deficiency anemia, or vitamin B deficiencies. They can also be caused by allergies and infections. Try taking some iron supplements and multivitamins for some days and see if the symptoms persist. Also continue with the prescribed antibiotics as they are discharging pus and seen to be infected.
Avatar f tn Now one sore is back on the left side of my mouth where my top and bottom lip connect. If i open my mouth too wide it tears and hurts. This is a new problem but it seems to be happening around the same time that all of the other things are happening.
974371 tn?1424653129 Went to a pulmonary doctor who just prescribed an inhaler. Tried that and cannot use it as it aggravates the dry mouth and throat. This is now 24/7 and interrupting my sleep as I am either trying to hack this up or my throat is so dry, I start coughing and have to try and drink water, which seldom helps. Not sure if this is an ENT issue or a pulmonary issue. Doctors don't seem to be able to tell me where it is coming from. I just know, all these problems seem to be getting worse.
Avatar f tn It started out with the skin on the inside of my mouth (mostly on the reverse side of the lips and the mucous membranes of the corners of my mouth) turning white. If I bite on it there is no feeling and it comes off easily. It appears not in patches but in wide spreads, and seems to form based on white circles. I also have a stress/fatigue-triggered symptom in my mouth where I would get random painful bumps. There can also be red dots that are painful.
Avatar f tn i have recently started taking glucosamine and red krill oil tablets and after five days noticed that i have a very dry mouth and dry throat. I do not have any teeth problems and i am not catching a flu or a cold.
Avatar m tn Ulcers have came and gone and my jaw/throat is sore. I also have a sort of strange taste in my mouth. Does anyone have any idea what this is ? I've been to see a doctor and she's getting me blood tests done.
Avatar f tn Last night I finished my seven day antibiotic metronidazole and now that I woke up it feels hard for me to swallow and my throat feels swollen(no pain.) and it feels like a build up of mucas that cant come up or go down when i swallow..throughout the whole treatment my tongue has felt raw like Ive ate a million bags of salt and vinegar chips..anyone else experience this?im 15w5d pregnant.
Avatar f tn T GET THRUSH, I DID RINSE MY MOUTH AND THROAT AFTER EACH USE, BUT IT REALLY DID A NUMBER ON MY THROAT, I WAS ABOUT TO GO CRAZY, BUT THANK GOD IT SEEMS THAT THE DULERA WAS THE CULPRIT, BECAUSE THAT IS THE ONLY THING I DID DIFFERENT, SO I JUST HOPE THIS HELPS SOMEONE ELSE WHO WAS EXPERIENCING MY SYMPTONS.
Avatar m tn I had a lot of burning throat problems due to acid refluxing in my mouth and touching my larynx. I started to take nexium and it kinda works. I take it two times a day since thaf is the recommended dose for people with lpr. Im a really scarred person and i always think about cancers. So im wondering if the nexium almost works 100% against my problem does that mean im good or the nexium couls mask throat cancer?
974371 tn?1424653129 More unresolved problems. Very long story. I suffer from chronic mouth and throat problems. Seen numerous ENT doc's. Took myself to a new GI doc and he ordered a nuclear dumping test which was normal. Told him of my feeling of nausea. Anyway, again having problems with night swears, wake up with an upset stomach, very dry mouth and throat and am now very bloated. He prescribed Pepcid twice a day but not helping. I now also have issues with a feeling of mucus down my throat.
Avatar f tn Unfortunately, the inhalers prescribed for asthma can cause problems in the throat and getting Thrush in the mouth is not uncommon. To avoid this, have a drink after using your inhaler. Also be aware that you may have triggers that set your asthma off, like smoky atmospheres, hot or hold temperature or even hair sprays and spray perfumes. When it gets cold, wear a scarf and cover your nose and mouth with it too so that you do not breathe in the cold air.
