Tongue feels diffusely burnt, painful to heat +halitosis; a few papillae have turned white. Whatis? (+gum abscess persistent post root canal revision)

Tongue feels diffusely burnt, painful to heat +halitosis; a few papillae have turned white. Whatis? (+gum abscess persistent post root canal revision)

Tongue symptoms: While I can't be certain, from what you say, the halitosis probably comes from your gum abscess (bacterial odor). The changes in your tongue could be due to an overgrowth of yeast germs (fungi) than can happen when you take an antibiotic; this could cause the redness, tenderness, and white patches. Other causes of the tongue changes could be inflammation (glossitis) due to allergy or infection. ...Read more

Does the mouth wash they give you after having your wisdom teeth removed burn/cause pain. 
It's 0.12% of medicine I can't remember the name as of now?

Chlorhexidine: The mouthwash you were likely given is 0.12% Chlorhexidine and goes by the names of perioguard or perished. It can cause a little burning due to its alcohol content especially is you rinse too aggressively or for too long of time. Think of how listerine burns your gums when you rinse with it. The keys are to rinse gently for about 30 seconds two times per day (unless your doctor said differently) ...Read more

Burning mouth syndrome wrecked my mouth. Teeth are crumbling and have an infection with pus. Multiple sites. On cipro (ciprofloxacin). Is this an appropriate drug?

Burning mouth syndro: Burning mouth syndrome does not cause crumbling teeth or gum infections. Dry mouth due to lack or loss of saliva can cause rampant decay if there is poor oral hygiene. Infections with pus sounds like gum disease, but may be due to a systemic disease.

Cipro is not known as a treatment for burning mouth or gum disease.

You need to coordinate treatment between your dentist and physician. ...Read more
