Dr. Dinh Bui answered:

White/yellow roof of mouth and canker sores. What do these symptoms indicate and how can I cure them?

Yeast infection

Palate
You may have yeast infection on roof of the mouth. Check if your tongue has the white coating. Treated with topical or systemic antifungal meds. Your canker sore also may have filled with white or yellow pus. There is no real treatment for canker sore, as they will resolve between 7-12 days. Palliative treatment to help with the discomfort included topical benzocaine. Keep the area clean.

I have wat I believe is a canker sore on the roof of my mouth what do I do...?

What you believe?

Aphthous
Canker sores do not generally form on the palate. As a matter of fact in over 40 years of practice I've not personally seen one there. You most likely do not have a canker sore\aphthous ulcer. What to do? See a dentist for a definitive diagnosis and then some guidance.

I have a canker sore that is just beginning to develop on the roof of my mouth. I tend to get them when I get colds. How can I stop it from developing?

Cause not known

Canker_sore
While the cause of canker sore is unknown here are some factors associated with them that you can control. Stress is a big factor. Deficiency in Vitamin B, Zinc, Folic acid can increase canker sores. So can highly acidic diet. Avoid products with SLS. Read toothpaste labels and try one SLS free. Hope this helps.

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

i have a swollen tonsil and canker soar at roof of mouth followed by irritation in my nose ,why?

Cancer sore

Nobody knows the actual cause of these annoying lesions. They are often brought on by stress, including underlying infection. It is probable that you have a virus causing upper respiratory tract inflammation in your tonsil and nose and probably have a sore throat as well. These should clear up in about 8 to 10 days. Hope you feel better soon.

I have canker soars all over the inside of my mouth including the roof of my mouth. Over the last 2 day the left side of my face has also broken out, ?

Virus or allergy

Antiviral
There are a number of different species of virus that can cause your symptoms. Some can be treated with antiviral medication. A severe allergic reaction can cause similar symptoms. See a doctor. At the very least you can get help with the symptoms. You also will want someone to know what's going on if things are getting worse. Get medical help immediately for trouble breathing or swallowing.

Dr. Kim Capehart answered:

What to do for canker sores in mouth?

Canker Sores

Head-mouth
The exact cause of most canker sores is unknown. Stress or tissue injury is thought to be the cause of simple canker sores. Certain foods -- including citrus or acidic fruits and vegetables (such as lemons, oranges, pineapples, apples, figs, tomatoes, and strawberries) - can trigger a canker sore or make the problem worse. It usually resolves in a week or 2 but minimizing irritation can help.

Why do canker sores form in the mouth?

Viral infection

Head-mouth
Most people have been exposed to the virus that causes canker sores. It "hides" out in the nerves near the affected area, and stress, trauma or many other factors may cause a recurrent "breakout" of these sores. It should not be a major concern, unless a patient has immune system problems.

Dr. Sam Markzar answered:

Can sinusitis cause sores to roof of mouth?

Yes..

Teeth_brushing
But it would be better if a CT scan of maxilla is taken, if you are suspicious of sinus pathoses.
