I have an extremely sore palate at the roof of my mouth. It is irritated & aggrevated by hot food and salt. I've had two teeth extracted this week and have been told to use hot salty water to aid the healing process, i can't do this as the pain is excruciating and salt aggrevates even more. I also have a cold sore on my lip. What do you think is the cause of the sore palate at the roof of my mouth & are there any home remedies or cures or something i can buy over the counter?

Hi Dee,
sore palat or throat can be due to post nasal dripping, but there are many more causes also like viral infection, bacterial infections, take pseudoephidrine and also do lukewarm salt water gargling, consult ENT specialist if it persist/
Take care
