Yellow roof: Your problem is obviously not self healing, and is unlikely to do so. Have you seen a Dentist to be examined for fungal infection? Any lesion in the mouth that does not disappear in two weeks requires examination and appropriate testing to arrive at accurate diagnosis before treatment can be applied. Please see your Dentist.
