Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern looking to the history given here I could say that this could be due to the stomatitis and in my opinion it would be better to see the dentist because here the dental condition need to be ruled out, hope this information helps you take care and have a nice day.
I find this answer helpful
