What is the cause and remedy for white sores on the tongue ?

my tongue has 3 white sore spots, which look like the skin is peeling around a small sore. The inside of my mouth is also sore and sensitive to hot, salty, spicy and acidic foods. I have consulted 2 Dr s and a Dentist . The Dentist was very harsh on me, he doesn t believe in my medical condition and lectured me about my med s. He believes my tongue and mouth is deteriorating due to dry mouth from my med s he also warned me that I could get an infection in my mouth or worse death! What type of advice do you have for me?

This could be aphthous ulcers. Try applying Dologel(choline salicylate) on the sore spots. Eat bland foods for a couple of days. Drink plenty of water and fluids. Have Becosule-Z (B-complex+Zn) once a day for a month. Avoid unnecessary medication.

Have a nice day :)

Hi there. Thank you for posting your question with Healthcaremagic. I will do my best to help you.

Actually this sounds more like oral lichen planus (erosive). This would be particularly likely if you are on any long-term medication like a beta-blocker.

Consider your medications. Any long-term medication can give you this but bets-blockers are particularly culpable. If it is oral lichen planus you may need to go on steroids for a while. You may need to consult a specialist oral physician and have biopsies taken.

I hope you get better soon. This sounds very nasty.

I hope that I have answered your questions fully and been of some help. If you have anymore questions please contact me again anytime.
