Re-check important: If spots on your tongue haven't improved after 3 wks, let your gp know that - it may need to be seen by either an oral surgeon or dermatologist, depending on the character of the "spot".
You didn't mention what these spots look like, but some conditions on the tongue are not abnormal, just atypical. A dentist can either tell you or have the specialist diagnose it, but do follow up with this. ...Read more

What to do if I have a big cold sore on my lip and was wondering if I could use orabase on it?

Palliative Only: Orabase will not help the cold sore, except alleviating mild discomfort. What you need for a cold sore (which is the herpes simplex virus) is anti-viral medication. I recommend valcyclovir tabs and Acyclovir topical paste. The dosage determined by your dentist. Remember, "cold sores" are very contagious, to yourself and others!

What is an appropriate corticosteroid to use for mouth ulcers? I used Kenalog Orabase from Bristol-Meyers Squib, but they don't produce it anymore. I got Corti-Fluoral from Bayer from the pharmacist on a trip to Italy, but this is - as far as I could

If It's a canker sore it will be gone in 7-10 days. ...Read more
