Canker sore in mouth, red dot on hard palate. Concerned

Hi I m 18 and I think I have a cold, (sore scratchy throat, runny/stuffy nose, postnasal drip, congestion, headache, diarrhea and enlarged lymph nodes) but just this morning I woke up and had a canker sore in the back of my mouth on what I think you call the soft palate , and a pimple sized red dot in the very middle of my hard palate. I have a few winter colds under my belt but never has it lasted this long and have those two things happened. I don t have any sores in the back of my throat like for strep , because that is what I was mostly concerned with.

Thanks for writing to us.

Sores developed on your palate may be due to-Vitamin deficiencies,allergic foods ingested,dentures or appliances inserted.

I would advice you to get a clinical examination by a dentist.

Swish with lukewarm saline frequently.

Take vitamin becosules,iron supplements.

Avoid intake of spicy foods.

Take care.
