Dr. Alan Slootsky
Specializes in Dentistry
Leukoplakia meds: Leukoplakia is a white patch. It sometimes needs to be biopsied if it does not go away in 3 weeks. It can be from biting or irritating the cheek. It could be a sharp tooth that needs to be polished. There are no OTC meds for this, except possibly dental wax that can be placed on a sharp tooth until you see your dentist. Avoid sucking on aspirin, as this can also be a cause.
