See Dentist ASAP: See your Dentist as soon as you can for examination, diagnosis and treatment. The swollen node could be from many things, not necessarily related to the mouth conditions. Gum tissue coloration varies and may be something more noticeable due to the recession or a calculus buildup. Palatal bumps could be from a number of things, as well. See the Dentist and get this resolved so you can not worry. ...Read more

Mouth eruption: Your symptoms seem viral in nature, and the patches may be a specific type. Upper respiratory illnesses such as sinus infection can present similarly with nasal stuffiness and diminished taste. Bacterial infection such as strep throat is not usually a palatal disease. However, mononucleosis is always a concern for a range of symptoms and can be tested for. An exam is in order if you don't improve. ...Read more
