Pain between the 2 bump on the ridges of the roof of mouth, inflammation, had eaten alfredo sauce. Any ideas?

Hello, I have been having an issue for the past 3 days with the ridges on the roof of my mouth behind my 2 front teeth . Here is a picture: & Here is a link to the picture in case that didn t work: WWW.WWWW.WW You cant see well in the photo, but the main part that hurts is the ridge between the 2 bumps. It goes back about halfway down my hard palate towards my soft palate. I noticed a burning sensation right after having a lick of alfredo sauce off the inside of the sauce lid. I have had this brand of sauce many times, no issues in the past. No allergies I am aware of and didn t burn my mouth. It hurt and was slightly inflamed the first 24 hours, since then it has become UNBEARABLY painful and hugely swollen. Any idea what this could be?

Hello there, your palate shows inflammation that is redness and burning sensation.possible causes can be deficiency of vitamins,acid reflux,drug allergy,fungal infections like oral candidiasis,viral like herpes simplex and many more.To rule this out you got to meet a doctor soon.Till then at home you can rinse your mouth with lukewarm salt water or antiseptics like betadine, lesterine gives soothing effect. try applying topical anesthetic and analgesic oral creams that will make you feel easy. i hope that helps you,take care.

Thank you for the query.
Your history suggests of inflammation in your palate caused either by infection or may also be due to food , suppose if you take anything very hot and spicy it can lead to this kind of situation.As you said its behind your front teeth there is another possibility - formation of a palatal groove and deposition of calculus in that area may lead to swelling in the palate . Take a course of antibiotic and analgesic, avoid hot food intake, betadine gargle rinses, topical anesthetic application would help you. see your dentist as early as possible to rule out the exact cause for the swelling and pain.
Take care.

Thanks for asking the query,

According to your clinical history i suspect that there is inflammation and burning sensation of your palate. This can occur due to any allergic reactions, vitamin deficiencies, acid reflux, bacterial or fungal infections.
I would suggest you to visit the Dentist and get the checkup done.
Apply Dologel oral ointment topically over the affected area.
Take lukewarm saline rinses and antiseptic mouthwash rinses.
Take multivitamin tablets.
Maintain a good oral hygiene.

Hope this helps out.
