Hi..
Welcome to HEALTHCARE MAGIC..

I have gone through your query and can understand your concerns..

As per your complain it seems that you are suffering from Pericoronitis that is inflammation of gum flap over and around the wisdom tooth and it is caused secondary to infection..
Stomatitis is commonly seen secondary to throat infection and tonsillitis and you need not to worry as both conditions will be resolved gradually.
For both tonsillitis and pericoronitis some common remedies include:
Take antibiotics like Augmentin, anti-inflammatory painkiller like Naproxen or Ibuprofen, do warm saline gargles..
Take a soft diet and maintain a good oral hygiene, do antimicrobial mouthwash gargles..
Keep the area between the wisdom tooth and gum flap clean..
Gargle with warm saline after meals.
In case of soreness in mouth do gargles with numbing mouthwash containing Lignocaine..
As many a times inflammation of tonsils is seen secondary to pericoronitis, so in case if the swollen gum flap does not resolve consult an Oral Physician and get evaluated and he can take an x ray and rule out that whether tooth is impacted or not and accordingly treatment can be done as if tooth is impacted extraction can be done and if not impacted removal of gum flap can relieve the symptoms permanently..

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards.

Hello! Our daughter is 30 months old. For the past several months she was getting ill very often after she has had an enteric infection in the summer when she was treated with antibiotics. After that she had colds or flu several times, stomatitis, with a high fever. Recently when again she had a flu as we thought, our doctor advised to make some tests (blood, urine for dysbacteriosis etc.). The results returned with Proteus Vilgaris in her urine, sensitive to cyprofloxacin. Ultrasound for kidneys is fine, blood shows eosinophil - 1, white cells 5, neutrophyle lymphocyte 39, segment 53, ESR - 3. Can this be the reason why she is getting ill so often? If the reason is Proteus Vulgaris should there be any other symptoms apart from the fever? If we use antibiotics again will we supress her immune system even further? Should we repeat the urine test in case it is a mistake as we might have not collected her urine properly? Thank you very much in advance!

I've been taking Xeloda and Celebrex as a chemotherapy cocktail, and I've experienced stomach cramping and diarrhea and also constipation. Now, hemmorhoids. I'm looking for something to 'calm" the stomatitis that flares up as soon as I eat something--anything--which then triggers a gastric colon reflex. Immodium calms but I'm afraid that will lead to a worse result--constipation (although I've eaten very little in the last two days).
