Hello there ,

Thanks for writing your query,

Appearance of recurrent ulcers on the oral mucosa indicates inflammation .

It may be caused due to several reasons like deficiency or certain vitamins especially vitamin B12 and vitamin C.

Maintain good oral hygiene by practicing regular mouth rinsing with lukewarm saline water or antiseptic mouthwash like betadine or chlorhexidine.

start with multivitamin supplements for 7 to 10 days and vitamin C lozenges will help in resolving the problem.

avoid alcohol , carbonated drinks , tobacco chewing and smoking as these may worsen the area affected.

For tonsillitis , you may need to get the examination and clinical evaluation done approaching an ENT specialist.

i hope this helps ,

take care.

Hello and welcome to hcm,
The pain and ulceration may be due to pericoronitis.
Get a thorough check up to see whether your wisdom tooth is impacted or not.
Vitamin becosules and c has to be taken.
Get your wisdom tooth extracted/oprculectomy done.
Apply dologel on the affected area.
Avoid intake of spicy/sour foods.
Maintain good oral hygiene.
Include fluids and nutritious rich food into your diet.

Dear friend.

Thanks for sharing your concern.

According to the history given, it appears that there is ulceration developed in the posterior part of your mouth.

It might be extending to your throat(pharyanx,larynx )too.which you cannot see on your own,as you have history of tonsillitis.

Please visit your ENT specialist first in thisregard. so that it can be evaluated properly and hence treated.

I think this should solve your oral problems too.

If the symptoms still persist then you can visit your dentist.

Hope it helps.

Take care.

Thanks for asking the query,

Mouth ulcer occurs due to vitamin deficiencies specially vitamin B3 and vitamin C, traumatic incidents like self inflicted bites, tooth brushing trauma, hormonal disorders, allergic reactions.

Also look for any errupting wisdom tooth it can be associated with swelling in the jaws and pericoronitis.
Take an OPG x-ray to give clear idea.

Alao get an clinical examination done by an ENT specialitist to look for any abnormalities for tonsils.

Meanwhile maintain a good oral hygiene, take antiseptic mouthwash gargles.
Apply dologel oral ointment topicallly over the affected area.

Hope this helps out.
