Question: i have a cut on my glossopalatine arch it seems, it is kind of surrounded by white and opening my mouth is very sore. I can't see a doctor because I am in a foreign country. What can I do to keep it from getting (possibly more) infected?

Brief Answer:
looks like aphthous ulcer

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

As per the photo, it looks like two aphthous ulcers to me.

I would sugget that you take some multivitamin capsules and antiseptic mouth wash. I guess getting that much won't be a problem in any country.

Do mouth wash 3-4 times a day, specially after meals. And take multivitamin twice a day.

Hope I have been helpful.

Get well soon.

Brief Answer:
needs to consult doctor

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

As you have developed mild fever that suggest you have developed infection. Dizziness may be because of pain. I would start antibiotics like amoxicillin and clavulinic acid combination along with painkiller. But these are prescription drugs so you need to consult a doctor. Continue mouth gargle and multivitamin.

Hope I have answered your query . If any further queries are there I would love to help .

Regards
Dr.Deepika Patil

Do you think I'll be okay without an antibiotic until I get back to the U.S. on Sunday?

Brief Answer:
depends upon the fever

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

If your fever remains of mild degree only, then you can manage with antibiotic mouth wash. But if it goes up, then you will have to take antibiotics.

It could be viral fever and might resolve by Sunday. But that is not sure.
So for now continue with mouth wash and hope for the best.

Best regards,
Dr.Deepika Patil

Hi doctor. I get reoccuring canker sores every 2 or so months. I am a 28 yr old female. I have gotten canker sores since I can remember, when I was a small child. Now I get them in my throat as well. As of current, 2 days ago I woke up with my throat scratchy (I ve had 2 canker sores on the lining of my right cheek for a few days now).Thought maybe it was allergies. Yesterday morning I woke up with a full blown sore throat, lots of thick yellow post nasal drip, body aches and chills. No fever. This morning, I looked in mt throat again, I have 2 huge canker sores directly in the back. Can you help me? Thanks!

I started out with a pink eye...a few days later my throat became sore & I began to notice canker sores under my tongue & now they've developed on my throat...first pink eye, now this! Could all of this be correlated or just a coincidence? What can be causing this sore throat/canker sores? It's been about a week now & these symptoms have not diminished. May I add that I took cipro for a urinary tract infection less than a month ago...please help! :/

Hello I have a 15 yr old daughter that has two (I am assuming lymph nodes) knots behind her right ear located on her mastoid bone that are painful. These places come and go. The last time it was noticable was in July of this year. She as seen her doctor that was not concerned. This may sound crazy but we have noticed these places appear about a week before her period. She also has battled with canker sores in her mouth on and off for several years. She is very active and in good health otherwise. Do you think in anyway this could be related to her menstural cycle / hormones? We have also noticed when the knots appear it is when she has been under more stress than normal and also when she has the canker sores and some acne before starting her period.
