Develop canker sores in mouth. Had sore throat and pus bumps on back of tongue. Given antibiotics. Suggest?

About two weeks ago I started to develop three cankersores inside my mouth. I took a flashlight and looked inside my mouth and noticed I had a yellowish tint to the roof of my mouth with two tiny red dots on the roof of my mouth and the side of my cheek. I had a sore throat and pus bumps on the back of my tongue. I went to the doctor and he told me I had puss packets in the back of my throat and that means I have an infection somewhere. He wrote me an antibiotic and sent me on my way. Im just slightly concerned because he only looked in my mouth for a split second and I recently have been under alot of stress so I've started smoking. The last few times I've smoked it caused my tongue to burn.

From history it seems that you might be having stomatitis with upper respiratory tract infection.
Complete the antibiotic medicine course and wait.
Takesome B.complex, folic acid medicines for few days.
If there is no improvement then consult oral surgeon and get examined.
Quit smoking.
Avoid junk food.
Ok and take care.

Thanks for writing to us.

Your clinical symptoms are typically indicative of Stomatitis .

First, quit smoking as it will worsen the situation & prolong the duration of the condition.

Use Bcomplex capsule twice daily along with Antibiotics.

Local Anesthetic mouth rinse like tantum is of utmost important to relieve pain before & after having meals.

Avoid spicy food, take complete sleep & maintain your oral hygiene to optimum level.

Hope you find this information helpful.
Take care.
