Hello,
The problem seems to be a soreness of the palate. There could be minor ulcers over the palate which could cause the discomfort. Apply dentogel ointment over the are 3-4 times a day for a week . Avoid hot and spicy foods meantime. Take warm saline gargle 3-5 times a day. Take analgesics as prescribed by your dentist. Consult your dentist.

Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The strawberry fruit may be caused allergy to your hard palate.
I would suggest you to avoid intake of very hot/spicy foods.
Also check whether any pus filled abscess has developed in your roof of mouth.
Get thorough clinical evaluation.
Use warm saline gargle frequently.
Apply dologel on the burned area to relieve pain temporarily.
Do not impinge the affected area using fingernails/safety pins.
Hope this helps.

hello Hailey,
I would be glad to answer your query,
I would like to inform you that sometimes the seeds from strawberry or even the sharp edges of waffles rub against the palate(roof of mouth) and cause sores. Avoid eating spicy or hot foods for a while. I will recommend you to apply a gel (for sores) over the palate atleast 3- 4times /day,half an hour before or half an after meal.
The gel is available over the counter at a pharmacy.
Do not worry, sores will subside in a weeks time, if they still persist then kindly see your dentist.
i hope i answered your query,
i wish you good health.

Hi,

Thanks for asking the query,

After reading your symptoms I suppose that you had developed a ulcer on the roof of your mouth.
This can be due to trauma caused by foodstuffs, vitamin deficiencies, allergic reactions, stress.

I would suggest you to apply Dologel oral ointment topically over the affected area.
Take lukewarm saline gargles, use antiseptic mouthwash rinses.
Avoid eating of hot and spicy foodstuffs.
Take multivitamin suplements.
Maintain a good oral hygiene.

Hope this helps out.

Regards....

Dear friend.

Thanks for sharing your concern.

your history suggests that you have developed apthous ulcer on your palate.

This could be due to many reasons like vitamin B deficiency,stress,smoking.poor oral hygiene.

Any allergy to any food stuff or rarely an abscess can also cause such symptoms.

Therfore please start vitamin B capsules and continue them for 15 days.

Apply dologel locally before and after food for pain relief.

Avoid hot spicy and hard food stuff.

Take healthy and nutritious diet and also drink plenty of fluids.

If the symptoms do not recover within three to five days please visit your dentist and get it examined clinically.

Hope it helps.

Thanks.

Take care.

Hello there ,

Thanks for writing your query,

After reading your symptoms i suspect you have developed MUCOSITIS , that is inflammation of the oral mucosa which may be caused due to allergic reaction to certain food stuffs .


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 carbonated drinks , hot and spicy food stuffs as these may worsen the area affected.

Apply oral antiseptic ,analgesic ointments like dentogel or mucogel topically over the affected area.

i hope this helps ,

take care.
