ESI shots in back, white blotches on tongue and cheek. Will I be okay?

2 weeks ago my husband got ESI shots in his back. Now he has way more problems then ever. But one I m mostly concerd with is white bloches on his tongue and cheek. I read on the Internet that it may come from an increase in liquids or it may be his body treading the shot like an infection. Witch sound like good reasons in my oppenion just looking at him. Could the white bloches on his tongue be from the shots or could it be from a whole other reason .

Dermatologist 's  Response

White patches on tongue and cheek would be euther leukoplakia or candidal oral thrush.

Internal diseases like DM,HIV,anaemia and other diseases should be ruled out.

His dieases is mot related with shots.

If he is having bad habit of tobacco or smoking, he should leave it.

Oral hygiene should be improved with antiseptoc gargles.

Antifungal tablets with antifungal oral paits would be advised for about 2 weeks.

If no response, antoxidants orally for few months and local tacrolimus oint 0.03% should be applied on the white patches in mouth.

Improve immunity withimmunobusters.

Avoid stress.

Have healthy food.

I hope you got my answer.
