Seek Rx: Any pain, bleeding, or swelling should be immediately evaluated. Any white lesions in mouth should be immediately evaluated. Please see Oral and Maxillary Surgeon ASAP. OTCs, herbs, unguents, salves, and snake oil are NOT substitutes for a professional evaluation. Don't ignore this. Probably nothing, but get it checked. ...Read more

If you are unable to drink enough to stay hydrated, are drooling because you can't swallow your saliva, or have fever or chills seek care immediately. ...Read more
