What is this in my mouth???
Topic: What is this in my mouth???
May 20, 2019 / By Briar Question:
I went to the dentist today and got 2 root canals done. I was on an antibiotic for 7 days for a extremely infected tooth. Well today when I went, it was still badly infected. It wouldnt numb all the way from the infection, but he went on with it anyway. It was the worst pain I have ever felt in my life, I would have rather been going through child birth. Well now, I have this huge sore on my gums, lip and tongue. The one on my gums in lip is about 1 - 1 1/2 inches long nd a spot on my tongue. They are bright white, very sore, and burn really bad. It starting to crack and now its raw underneath it. What is this?? What can I do for pain?? And as far as the anestetic not working, do you have other options, I refuse to ever got through that pain again, it was worse than child birth. PLEASE HELP?? I NEED SOME ADVICE. What is this on my mouth?? And what about not being numbed????
He didnt perscribe me anything except a stronger antibiotic, what can I do for pain now?? Advil is not working Thanks!!
Its not from the tooth infection, its not neat the infection, its more like a burn, but Im not sure.

The antiobiotics that you were given to kill the infection also robbed you of your water soluble B complex of vitamins.
Sore mouth lips and tongue, cracking and splitting skin around your fingernails and grainy and sandy feeling in your eyes are signs of vitamin B2 (riboflavin) deficiency hun .... eat more foods rich in B2 ie~
milk, liver, kidneys, cheese, leafy green vegies, fish, eggs, yoghurt and beans.
Vitamin B2 is needed in our bodies for healthy nails, skin and hair, will benefit vision and alleviate eye fatigue and works best with B6, B3 and vitamin C............... so, take a multi B complex supplement,particularly if you are lactose intolerant or vegetarian ~ get one including all the B's ie ~ B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and B12...... as they all work best as a group.... Don't buy any of the B complex of vitamins individually unless specifically instructed to do so by a nutritionally oriented physician or naturopath ♥
The whole and natural food will always be the most nutritious and easiest to assimilate ♥
Things that could be robbing you of your precious B complex of vitamins are ~ antiobiotics (that's what has precipated the sores) , antidepressants, laxatives and diuretics, otc cold and flu meds, coffee, tea, sodas and soft drinks and alcohol .................. when we're under stress our B vitamins will be depleted first hun so bolster your immune, digestive and neural system by taking a B complex supplement ♥
You can buy the B complex of vitamins in liquid or sublingual form (dissolve under the tongue) also ♥
As far as the anaesthetic not working and you being in sooo much pain......... i'd definitely change Dentists ... ;0)
take care of you ♥

Mouth ulcers can be a sign of an autoimmune disease. They most commonly occur in people with Lupus, Celiac Disease and Bechet's Disease. It doesn't necessarily mean you have an autoimmune disease but it's definitely worth getting a doctor's opinions.
In the mean time, mix some warm water with salt and swish it around your mouth.

I am not quite sure what the white sores are. The only thing I can think of is something called thrush. Thrush is a yeast infection of the mouth (I know it sounds gross, but babies get it) Google "thrush" and look for some pictures to see if looks similar.
As for the numbing problem...I have that very problem, but all the time. You have to insist that they give you more. Also, there are different kinds of Novocaine that are longer lasting and more effective. Your dentist should have stopped. Remember, you are paying him. You can tell him to stop at any time.
There are dentist that will actually put you to sleep with a twilight anesthesia. You should really look into this and make an appointment with another dentist that will do whatever he/she can to make you completely comfortable.
I feel your pain....I have experienced the pain your are describing and agree...I would rather give birth. :)

no offense meant to ur dentist but he shouldnt have touched ur gums when it was still infected... it seems he wasnt able to cleanse the canal very well or might not have taken all the abcess in the tooth that what caused the infection... and with regards to ur sores he might used unsterilized tools... antibiotics and pain killers can help but i just dnt want to give u exact meds for it might worsen the sore especially if u do have allergies with antibiotics and painkillers.. better see another dentist that he may prescribe u a better drug....

I think when any sore is white it means that it is infected. Bacteria might have got in your gums. I would use some Listerine. And gargle with salt water. That will kill the germs and the salt water will also numb the pain. And go back to your dentist as soon as you can.

Originally Answered: How to get rid of acne around mouth?
Acne can be difficult to deal with no matter how old you are, but it can be especially embarrassing when it happens to adults. You probably figured that the acne would dissipate as you became an adult and that's why, after puberty, the red marks and bumps can be so embarrassing. Fortunately, there are more than enough home remedies for acne, and we will talk about some of them in this answer.
There are lots of causes for adult acne, but some of them are easier to treat than others. Some women who suffer from adult acne do so because they are having a bad reaction to the chemicals contained in their cosmetics and switching brands can help them out a lot. Low quality cosmetics, for example, might contain harsher chemicals that will cause some people to suffer from acne. Natural make-up can help you if you think that this is the cause of your problem. Another cause of female adult acne is hormones which can be exacerbated by birth control pills. If you are an adult woman, a couple of simple changes can often help you by quite a bit. You can sometimes cure (or at least lessen) your acne naturally by changing your diet. Some foods, like sugar as well as refined and processed foods can exacerbate acne, so you need to avoid things like soda, junk foods, fats and bad carbohydrates. Your acne can be made worse by things like alcohol and caffeine so try to cut those out as well. Some people are sensitive to meat and dairy products, but in some cases you can be healthier by reducing them a little or switching to organic varieties. Regular exercise can help you clear out your system which can help you cure your acne. While eating well and getting regular exercise is important it is also important to drink plenty of water. When it comes to detoxing, which is what you want to do when treating acne, nothing is better than water.
If you are seeking a simple, natural and helpful acne treatment, try aloe vera gel. You can find it in many drugstores, health food stores, and online. You can use this save and beneficial plant based product on your face several times a day. Ideally, you should get a aloe soap to wash your face with as well as a lotion and a gel. Before you go to bed at night, you can apply the gel to your face. Because aloe vera is very gently on the skin, you don't even have to wash it off. You can help clear up your acne faster by drinking more aloe vera juice as well, which will help your body to detoxify.
It's true that acne is annoying but you don't need to let it distress you too much. It's something many people go through, even as adults, and there are ways to treat it. The above acne treatments can help you to overcome this unsightly skin problem, and you just have to keep trying remedies until you find one that works for you.
