Month ago I had sinusitis I took medicine , the symptoms of sinusitis is gone but still have soft palate inflammation

See a dentist: I commonly see people that tell me they have had sinus infection, their physician gave them meds, it went away and then came back and they can't figure out why...Many times they had a dental abcess and there was a tooth that needed a root canal. With palate involved i would definitely say it is possible for you too. ...Read more

Who knows?: Many possibilities. You have to be examined to be diagnosed in order to select the best treatment. Your question is similar to, "I have a sore toe...what is this." Inflammation is a sign, not a Diagnosis. See ENT or Oral Surgeon. ...Read more

I have yellow soft palate with few little pink dots, halitosis and on and off freezing/burning sensation at the back of my throat. What should I do?

See otolaryngology: An otolaryngologist (ENT) will evaluate your sinuses, oral cavity and pharynx (throat). This may be related to chronic sinusitis, allergic post nasal drainage, chronic tonsillitis, minor salivary gland inflammation, tobacco use, laryngopharyngeal reflux or other oral conditions related to systemic illness. ...Read more

I think I have a soft palate canker sore in the back of my throat, it hard to put an ointment on it cause its so far back. How do it treat this?

I think I have a soft palate canker sore in the back of my throat, it hard to put an ointment on it cause its so far back. How do it treat this?

Mouth rinse: Unfortunately there are no good remedies for canker sores and causes are often unknown. The best treatments are usually just to treat pain, not to cure the sore. My personal favorite is what most call magic mouthwash. It is 1/3 Benadryl (to reduce inflammation), 1/3 viscous Lidocaine (to reduce pain), and 1/3 maalox (to make it stick). You rinse and spit or swallow. Ask your dentist about it. ...Read more
