Is it possible the canola oil can cause inflammation of the gums and or allergic reaction in the mouth?

Unlikely: In theory anything we eat or drink could cause gum inflammation due to an allergic response, but not likely. I have not heard anything specific about canola oil and would bet that your gum inflammation has more to do with your daily oral hygiene and how long it's been since you had a professional cleaning. ...Read more

Persistent chapped lips....for over a month.....today developed small blisters all around my mouth.....allergic reaction to lip balm?

Chapped or herpes: Maybe but blisters may mean herpes labialis[fever blisters or cold sores] especially if tingling just before and crops of grapelike vesicles on red base, anyway petroleum jelly is great to prevent chapped lips, don't lick lips because the saliva evaporates fast and causes chapping, using any lip balm like chapstick is good to prevent, try another lip balm like above. ...Read more

I've been on a steroid for a allergic reaction. When taking these, my immune system is low and my mouth is starting to get thrush and I cant swallow.

How many benadryl (diphenhydramine) is recommended for an adult with an allergic reaction to an sulfameth/trimethoprim. Itchy mouth, rash on upper body?

Sulfa rash: Although Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 25-50 mg up to 4 times daily can be taken to control the itching, the rash is unlikely to be controlled by an antihistamine.
