Inflamed palate: The treatment for an inflamed palate depends on the cause. Did you burn it? Trauma? Virus? Exposure to substances? Typical irritations heal quickly and can be managed with OTC medications. A dentist can help you determine what is going on and the best treatment.

See a dentist ASAP: Any other treatment is a temporary relief. The palate inflammation won't go away without treatment and the infection may spread to your jaw, sinus and to other areas of your mouth. Treatments vary depending on the underlying condition, and a dentist’s visit is warranted.

Type of injury: The type of medicine depends on what caused the inflammation. Is it due to mechanical, chemical, hot liquids, abscess, etc.? Treatment varies depending on the type and amount of injury. Sometimes a topical cream is prescribed if it is sever. Abscess can be drained and antibiotic prescribed. Usually analgesics such as Tylenol, (acetaminophen) ibuprofen, or aspirin are used for pain.
