Avatar n tn She was scoped at that time,the inflamation they saw in throat and colon was said to be due to C-diff.This year again she was hospitalized this time no C-diff was scoped again had some edema in esophagus.Her sedrate is always normal so they at this time are ruling out Crohn's.She is still on Zantac since last episode.She has since that time developed throat ulcers.She's had 5 episodes of this which family dr. says are viral this is in a 5 month scan.

Avatar f tn I have lots of ulcers in the back of my throat, here is a picture of my throat: I first noticed these ulcers when I had a sore throat 3 months ago. I went to my GP and he told me they were either due to a viral or bacterial infection and would go on their own. He told me to gargle Corsodyl. I did and they haven't changed. I have also tried gargling salt water, L-lysine but nothing has helped at all.
Avatar f tn 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 f tn It has been about 2 weeks since then and I have noticed white ulcers on my vagina and on the back of my throat. My nipples are not getting any better, I have been putting healing ointment along with bandages every night. My nipples are now turning white along with a yellowish puss. I have asked my partner if he has or think he has any sort of disease and he told me he does not have anything.
Avatar f tn I have had these little ulcers on the shaft of my penis for about a week. They are painless unless I'm about sitting in an uncomfortable spot. At one pain they were sensitive to touch but not anymore. They were never bubbly or puss filled and I didn't have any flu like symptoms. I also have not been sexually active for 2 to 3 months. They seem to be healing well but what is it???
Avatar n tn PPI would be helpful if it is due to reflux. Cytoprotective agents can be added to PPI for faster healing if ulcers are present. ================================================================ The information provided is for patients’ education only and is not a medical advice.

Avatar f tn Hi, I'm new here, apologies if this is in the wrong place or i've not got it right. Basically my sister has been ill for years, she's seen hundreds of Doctors and nothing has helped. It's making her miserable and she's desperate. The problem is that she permanently has a mouth and tongue covered in ulcers. It causes a lot of pain, she can't eat properly and is tired all the time. She has also had other symptoms at times including dizzyness, palpitations, depression.

Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with ulcers and stomatitis of the mouth and throat. I have had this for over 7 weeks and it is not healing. Now I have noticed a few sores on my chest, back and belly. Is this something viral or bacterial related? I have been to an ENT, GP and Dentist. I need to get this cleared up so I can eat again. I feel OK fever, blood pressure is good (a little low) and no aches or pain (except for the mouth and throat).

531005 tn?1286515532 So, GERD and Ulcers are now curable? I read that Ranitidine sped up the healing process in individuals who were taking it. I'm assuming healing means curing. My fear is having to take this one medicine everyday for the rest of my life. Thanks again.
Avatar f tn over 2 years his ulcers at the tip of fingers are well controlled by medicine - asprin, clopedrogel and atovastatin. but recent 3 months, his ulcers haven't healed properly and sometime he got cyanosis at the nail bed when the weather is cold. so doctor added pentoxyphylline but it doesn't improve very much. however his ulcer is superficial what i mean is only sloughting of the skin but it doesn't appear new skin on that area and size of skin disruption is larger and larger.
Avatar n tn Probably. An ulcer is a raw spot. If you got a bacterial infection and it was bad enough, you could get raw spots from it. I got strep throat once and it gave me ulcers in my throat, and it sure wasn't from sex.
Avatar n tn Proton pump inhibitors such as omeperazole (Prilosec) are very effective at healing ulcers secondary to NSAIDs. In patients who have previous history of ulcer disease or an ulcer complication are at higher risk for developing NSAID associated injury. In patients who absolutely require NSAIDs prophylaxis to prevent NSAID induced damage is recommended. Cigarette smoking has also been shown to delay ulcer healing and to increase the chance of recurrence.
