A 16-year-old female asked:

Toothpaste: There could be several reasons that need to be looked at but I will mention a very common problem. You may have to switch/change the toothpaste that is being used. Many of the toothpastes contain strong tartar removal ingredients that will irritate the roof of the mouth. So, try milder and less irritant one to start with. You can find the information on the label of the product. Hope this helps.

ER visit: Even though you have visited the ER and seen a doctor, I urge you to go back to the ER again. I understand you might be reluctant but something did not show up in the tests that were done and some more tests may need to be done. A fever lasting this many days is very much indicative of a persistent infection like meningitis, pneomonia etc. Please don't wait, take care.

Examination: First thing I would like you to do is see your Doctor/provider for an examination which include the throat and neck among other items. Problems might inclue a throat infection, acid reflux and many other issues, none of it could be ignored. So, at this time an examination is important, take care.
