Thanks for writing to us.

Increased appetite, multiple recurrent fungal infections, oral infections, etc are suggestive of a generalised problem like diabetes. You definitely need to get your blood glucose levels tested.

Another possibility of repeated fungal infections is improper and inadequate treatment with proper antifungal agents as these infections are notorious for recurrence.

The swelling in your neck is most likely a swollen lymph gland due to the infected tooth.

My advise would be to see your physician and get the diabetes diagnosed and get proper antifungals prescribed for the fungal infections.

I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful. Waiting for your further follow up queries if any.
