Last month I got a canker sore on my inner

Last month I got a canker sore on my inner lip. It healed within 2 weeks but Was mildly uncomfortable. Yesterday I accidentally popped a small blood blister in my mouth on my inner cheek. I can feel the lymph node behind my ear has a little bump as well. None of this hurts. I had a mild headache and dry throat as well between today and yesterday. I know my dental hygiene isn't great, I'm just worried this is an early stage to oral cancer.

HI, I ve been getting red spots on my inner upper gums for the last few months. They come and go, they are not raised, are not canker sores or blisters, but they are bothersome, it s like a burn like sensation. It s like if I ate something acid and my gums sting a little. I thought that it could be burning mouth syndrome as I think I got this for a few weeks a few months ago, but these small red spots are really only localized on the upper inner gums. What could they be? I m a woman in her 40 s.

Hello Doctors, I was recently put on Augmentin 875mg for 10 days for a sinus problem. However, I was reading that some side effects include loose or watery stool which I got the same day I started taking it (right after the second pill). My stool was very watery for the first 2-3 times and it became loose but still a bit watery. Also, I have noticed that I have had a significant breakout of canker sores on the roof of my mouth and inner lips. I have had one or two really big canker sores prior to starting Augmentin but as soon as I started Augmentin, the sores seemed to have gotten worse. I have about 9-10 and a few more that I can see that are coming along soon. I called my doctor to ask if i should stop taking Augmentin but she has not called me back yet and its been a few hours. Im wondering if I should stop the Augmentin now and if the canker sore breakout is related? Thank you for your time.

Hello, I think I may have a gum boil but I am not sure. I have been researching for a couple of hours. I looked at canker sores and mouth ulcers and it seems most like a gum boil. I have had this place on my top right gum for about a month. One day I tasted blood badley and it felt like maybe it was from that. I have accidently drained the pus out of the pocket. I was trying to see what it looks like and felt like just to figure it out. once i did that I tried to get all the pus out. Then it looked like a flat piece of skin that was hanging from the gum but very small in size. It has been about 20 minutes and it seems to be getting larger again, maybe with more pus, im not sure. I have never had anything on my gums or mouth before. However I have had a root canal before that I never got the crown for due to financial difficulty. My dentist referred me to a specialist about a year ago, but I have been unable to go, about 5 months ago the rest of my tooth that never got crowned came out it pretty much all broke off. I know I need to get this fixed but I havent been able to. But the tooth that had the root canal and then broke off is on the same side of my mouth but it on my bottom teeth. The pocket or place is above my right teeth at the very top of my gum. I am the type that washes my hands continually and now every time I touch my mouth. I am also afraid because I have two children that sometimes come behind me and drink after to me. I have told them not too especially now since there is something going on in my mouth. Can you please give your advice? I am so afraid of it being a canker sore or something or even this I dont know whats worse. Thank you
