Roof of mouth burn, what I can do to subdue the pain ?

I burnt the roof of my mouth eating something that was microwave hot. This happened on May 12, 2011 at 12:30pm. Now it s May 16, 2011 and it is very swollen and hurts pretty bad especially when I eat. The spot is on the left side of the roof of my mouth directly behind my teeth. I woke up on Saturday May 14, 2011 with a headeache, it started behind my right eye, then went to the back of left side of head and now it is down in my jaw line right next to my burn...and I still have this same headache. Was just wondering if burning the roof of my mouth could cause a headache, how long before the burn will heal and what I can do to subdue the pain?

Hi Ashley, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
You have developed a Canker Sore secondary to Hot food. Your Headache may be related to this. Not to worry as it will subside on its own in 10 to 14 days. It sometimes may last up to 6 weeks. You can follow these steps which may make you feel better, Avoid hot beverages and foods, spicy, salty foods and citrus fruits. Gargle with cool water or eat popsicles. This will be helpful.
Consult your Doctor immediately if you develop fever, skin rash, drooling or difficulty swallowing.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.
