It sounds like it's : Best to see a local dentist who can see exactly what you are describing and how best to resolve any concerns. We can't diagnose or suggest treatment without actually examining you at the very least.

Sores: Not sure what you are asking. I would suggest that you start with a complete work up by an ENT specialist. Some of your meds may cause dry mouth leading to some of your symptoms. Please consult with your md.

Canker sores: Canker sores, also known as mouth ulcers or mouth blisters, usually heal on its own in about a week or two. If the sores continue to persist, or are large or painful, visit a dentist or ENT doctor. Depending on the nature and severity of the sore, your doctor may prescribe antimicrobial mouth rinses, corticosteroid ointments, or a prescription to reduce the pain and irritation.
