YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM ORAL SUBMUCOUS FIBROSIS, condition associated with tobacco chewing. You will have to see your dentist.
Stop the pan masala /beetle nut /smoking/tobacco chewing/ alcohol and spicy food.dentist will inject steroid , hyaluronidase injection and after three days Local injection of placental extract 2ml (market preparation manufactured from 0.1gm of fresh human placenta) given at multiple sites, depending upon the degree of involvement.
Tab Lycored 1 tab everyday ( contains lycopene)
Advanced cases of trismus are treated by jaw dilation under general anesthesia with incision of fibrous bands.
