Dry mouth white tong: There are many things that can cause this, dhydration, thrush, iron poisoning, sarcoidosis, sickle cell, acute kidney disease, Aspirin poisoning, gastroenteritis, also side effects of medications can lead to this situation. Recommend seeing your physician for some blood work and prescription check if taking any meds rather than just treating the symptoms.

Depends: It entirely depends on what medications you've taken. I'm a little hard pressed to think of what two meds might cause those symptoms when taken together however. Always check with your doctor before taking more than one medication at a time. If you are taking over-the-counter medication sometimes you can call the manufacturer to ask them questions about it.

Nature can heal it: A painful mouth sore on a place inside the mouth, is called a canker sore or an aphthous ulcer. There is medicine to put on it for pain and inflammation, but the medicine doesn't heal it up faster. Some medicines need a prescription; some are otc. It may take 5-7 days to heal. A doctor should check if there are many or repeated ulcers, or possible sexually transmitted diseases.

Infiltration: Infiltration is a possibility. There are unrelated medical conditions, but amyloidosis and hypothyroidism must be considered.
