Red spots on the roof of mouth, tongue. Sore throat with low grade fever. What is the issue?

Hello, the roof of my mouth and my tounge is yellow and white with red spots.. I get a sore throat when I swallow or talk. Besides that I don't notice anything different. My temperature is 99.1 I would just like to know what is wrong with me.. I'm thinking oral thrush or mono but I have never had either before so I'm not sure.

Hello,

Red spots may be erythoplakic lesions/tobacco induced lesions.
pLEASE stop or reduce intake of very hot/spicy foods.
Discontinue the habit of amoking/tobacco chewing.
Maintain good oral hygiene.
Biopsy of the lesion will help to rule out the exact cause.
Apply mucopain gel on the affected site.
In severe cases,corticosteroids can be taken.
Hope this helps.

hi there,

Appearance of red spots on the oral mucosa like roof of the mouth , tonue and throat indicates inflammation .

Appearence of inflammed taste buds indicates inflammation of tongue mucosa and it may be caused due to several reasons like deficiency or certain vitamins especially vitamin B12 and vitamin C.

Maintain good oral hygiene by practising 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.

you can apply topical oral antiseptics like dentogel over the affected which helps in giving soothing effect and reduces burning sensation.

i hope this helps ,

take care.

Dear friend.

Thanks for sharing your concern.

your history suggests that your palate and tongue are inflammed .

This inflammation of tongue mucosa may be caused due to several reasons like deficiency of certain vitamins especially vitamin B12 and vitamin C.

some times candidal infection can also cause this.

I would suggest you to make a visit to your dentist for examination of the lesion developed.

meanwhile maintain good oral hygiene.

use antiseptic mouthwash like chlorhexidine.

start with multivitamin supplements 15 days and vitamin C lozenges.

you can apply oral antiseptics like dologel over the affected area, which helps in giving soothing effect .

Hope it helps.

Take care.
Thanks.
