Thanks for your query.

I will try to help you with your question. You are saying you have pain in your mouth but no swelling or redness.

Was this precipitated by anything?
Did it just occur suddenly?
Have you been on any new medications?

Waiting for your response,

No new medications. Thought it was a reaction to MSG but that was Thursday night. Nothing else I could think of other than that.

I'm not really sure without being able to see your mouth. You could try something called Amosan oral rinse. You can get it over the counter at the Pharmacy.

If it doesn't get better you obviously will have to see you GP or your dentist.

I hope this has helped somewhat.

Let me know if there is anything else I can help with.
