I recommend 2000 mg of bht (butylated hydroxytoluene) per day, until the lesions resolve (or you find out it is something else). Bht is available over the counter in a health food store. Don't drink alcohol when consuming bht. See the free e-book, wipe out herpes with bht. ...Read more

The earache doesn't worry me as much as that can be due to inflammation in the TMJ from pressure during the procedure. Follow up with either an oral surgeon your dentist. ...Read more
