Suggest treatment for mouth ulcers

I have had mouth pain since the end of august, went to clinic he said he believes is ulcers. Parts of my gums and mouth turned white and peeled off, now under the tongue has white patches and soreness, the throat has mild pain when I swallow. In the beginning the throat pain was extreme. Now the gums have stopped peeling and all that is left is the tongue issues and some spreading on the cheeks.

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

As per your complain as you have described the lesions the understanding goes in two directions..
1.In case if it is in the form of scattered painful ulcers then they are Apthous ulcers and can be treated with multivitamins, warm saline gargles, gargle with 1:1 solution of of benadryl and milk of magnesia, gargle with numbing mouthwash and avoiding hot and spicy foods..

2.In case if it is in the form of thick curdy white patches it can be due to yeast infection known as Oral Thrush and treatment will be done by antifungal mouthwash like Nystatin mouthwash and clotrimazole lozenges and taking probiotics like Yoghurt and garlic..

You should therefore consult an oral physician and get evaluated and treatment can be planned according to the cause..

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards.
