Ulcer next to vulva, sore throat, Vicks NyQuil LiquiCaps

I have a lump/bump/ ulcer next to my uvula . I ve had it for about 3-4 days now and I constantly have a sore throat. My mom had me gargle warm salt water and gave me some Vicks NyQuil LiquiCaps just now to help. I ve seen on a few websites that some people have cobblestone throats and they said its most likely because of smoking (most of them said they smoked cigarretes/weed) but I don t. My mom and dad do though. Just wondering what it is, how/why I got it, and how to get rid of it, thanks!

Welcome to HCM

Your symptoms are suggestive of simple ulcer in the mouth known as ulcer.

Causes include physical trauma, stress, lack of sleep, food allergies, deficiencies in vitamin B12, iron, and folic acid.

I advice you to take multi vitamin tablet and use any anesthetic jelly if pain is present. It will usually resolve on its own when the precipitating factors are removed.

Mean while i advice you avoid spicy foods, smoking and alcohol if any, salt water gargling will be helpful.

I hope i have provided the information you needed.

Take care.

The constant sore throat you describe is correctly described as cobblestone throat.This is likely to be allergic pharyngitis.Unless the allergy is treated it will keep bothering you.You can take Montair LC AT NIGHT FOR A WEEK along with Nasal spray..FLOMIST NASAL SPRAY 1 puff both nostrils twice daily for at least 3 months.This is safe and adult dose.If you are a child,this is once daily and tablet is Montair LC KID at night for a week. You will be relieved surely.
