Hi Elumalai,

How is your father's general health? BP/diabetes/cardiac/renal problems?

Visit a Oral medicine specialist ASAP to ascertain what the cause of his problems are.

Once oral infection is cleared,he will be able to eat better. Meanwhile use TANTUM mouthwash/Mucopain ointment 20min before meals to prevent discomfort.

Oral infection has been known to aggravate chest/heart problems so do not delay the Dr appointment.

Thanks & best wishes to your father
