I have ulcers in my mouth and small red acnes under l the skin in my chest what it would be and may stress be a cause for it?

Stress is good: Most "stress" is helpful -- it keeps us from doing nothing and wasting our lives, and provides the discomfort we need to make us achieve and be fulfilled. The "stress" that comes from abuse or impossible situations needs to be managed, and we can learn new patterns of thinking to cope better. Acne and mouth sores are only marginally stress-related & best managed medically. Cheers. ...Read more

Sharp pain under my right jaw line. No lump or swelling. Saw a dentist, nothing wrong with my teeth. Have acne breakouts around mouth area.

Facial pain: Hard to say when there is so little information. Acne or another skin lesion is suspect. Sometimes an examination of the oral cavity and perioral regions is limited by the dentist to the teeth only. A panoramic xray is a good screening tool to use to look for other sources of pain, and many times things like "cracked" teeth are completely overlooked or dismissed. See an oral surgeon. ...Read more

Consistent low grade fever for over 2 weeks. Pcos, anemia, anxiety, deppprision, tooth abcess, acne under my chin that won't go away. Been on clindmaycin?
