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.

The inside of my mouth has been feeling numb and has the texture of being burned by really hot food, but I don t have any pain. It has been like this for about 6 weeks. This is the first time I have ever had this condition. What could this be? I m male, 47, have high blood pressure (taking norvasc), had testicle cancer 8 yrs. ago (radiation treatment), have been drinking 5-10 beers a day, 4-6 days a week for about 27 yrs. Dave.

Every time I burn the roof of my mouth on hot food or graze it on crunchy food I end up after a day or so with pains in my gums, face ( sinus regions) ears and head. I m 40 and in good health generally. I suffer with RSI in my hands and arms. Is this normal?

Hi doctor. I get reoccuring canker sores every 2 or so months. I am a 28 yr old female. I have gotten canker sores since I can remember, when I was a small child. Now I get them in my throat as well. As of current, 2 days ago I woke up with my throat scratchy (I ve had 2 canker sores on the lining of my right cheek for a few days now).Thought maybe it was allergies. Yesterday morning I woke up with a full blown sore throat, lots of thick yellow post nasal drip, body aches and chills. No fever. This morning, I looked in mt throat again, I have 2 huge canker sores directly in the back. Can you help me? Thanks!

I started out with a pink eye...a few days later my throat became sore & I began to notice canker sores under my tongue & now they've developed on my throat...first pink eye, now this! Could all of this be correlated or just a coincidence? What can be causing this sore throat/canker sores? It's been about a week now & these symptoms have not diminished. May I add that I took cipro for a urinary tract infection less than a month ago...please help! :/

Hello I have a 15 yr old daughter that has two (I am assuming lymph nodes) knots behind her right ear located on her mastoid bone that are painful. These places come and go. The last time it was noticable was in July of this year. She as seen her doctor that was not concerned. This may sound crazy but we have noticed these places appear about a week before her period. She also has battled with canker sores in her mouth on and off for several years. She is very active and in good health otherwise. Do you think in anyway this could be related to her menstural cycle / hormones? We have also noticed when the knots appear it is when she has been under more stress than normal and also when she has the canker sores and some acne before starting her period.
