My dentist told me that stopping smoking has caused soreness & redness in the palate of my mouth. Has been there for 1 month plus now is this common?

Hmmmmmm.: I'm not sure if i personally would agree with that observation. Smoking can and will cause changes to the soft tissues of your mouth, including the palate. I would think that over time, the tissues will revert back to their natural healthy state, unless there has been some irreversible damage. You might want to check with an oral surgeon regarding the health of the tissues of your palate. ...Read more

I ve few throat ulcers, and soreness and redness in throat, this occurred on 5th day after onset of use of suprax (cefixime) for UTI, what may be the cause?

Virus? Herpes?: Probably urelated to Suprax (cefixime). Sore throat with ulcers sounds like a viral infection -- several possibilities, but one if them is new herpes. Was your UTI confirmed? Did those symptoms clear up? I'm wondering if you may have had sexual exposure with a new HSV infection both oral and genital. But of course only if at risk of STD. See MD ASAP, sooner the better for accurate diagnosis and effective Rx. ...Read more

Can strep throat cause only mild sore throat with redness and mild flu like symptoms with temp of 99.0?

Yes: Some people have minimal symptoms with strep as adults & some actively carry it in their throat & never seem to get sick from it. Without a fever, I am reluctant to consider it an infection but when there are both fever & generalized symptoms it is likely not a simple carrier state. ...Read more

Sharp right side groin pain 4weeks after EP Study sore to touch, no swelling, redness, lumps or bruising no answers from GP. EP was negative. Cause?

Post ep study pain: I'm assuming the pain is on the side where the vein in your leg was punctured for your study. Check if a special vein closure device was used or if there was some bleeding below the vein resulting in a big hematoma. Might consider getting an ultrasound of the site to give you an idea what is going on. ...Read more

Can an STD in your throat cause one side to be sore, one tonsil mildly swollen, with redness on the crown of your throat, and itchy?

Sore throat: It could be especially if there is alot of pus but it is much more likely to be from another bacteria. If it is on one side it could be an abscess and that needs drainage since antibiotics are less likely to work. All and all a trip to the MD is in order. ...Read more
