Get 2nd opinion: Only you know what you may or may not have done, but this is a major step and I'd get a second dentist to take a look.

A 46-year-old member asked:
Does a mouth blister indicate a stomach infection?
2 doctor answers • 3 doctors weighed in
Specializes in Pediatrics
Sometimes: Some stomach viruses can cause mouth ulcers. For example, herpangina and hand, foot and mouth illnesses are two common viral infections. They are annoying, but rarely dangerous. There are several other causes of mouth ulcers, including canker sores, minor trauma, or different viruses. In either case, the only treatments required are pain control and fluids.

Who is more leaky to catch an STD during sex, men or women?
2 doctor answers • 2 doctors weighed in

Women: By and large, because women (in a traditional setting of penile-vaginal intercourse type sex) are the 'receptors' and have secretions deposited inside them, they are more likely to obtain infections than men. This is especially true for things like hiv.

Possible: It is possible to feel sinus pressure after having an upper wisdom tooth removed, but it doesn't usually feel that way. Contact your oral surgeon or dentist to make sure that you don't have an infection, or a sinus communication. Follow up today.
