Maybe canker sore?: Canker sores are common aphthous ulcers of the surface of the mouth that occur situationally, often in response to stressors, are bacterial or viral, & can be treated topically with many otc products that reduce local discomfort & potentially speed healing.

I wear a c-pape machine and sometimes i get a sore on one or both sides of my mouth and my mask just covers my nose and my nose and my nose get dry like a plastic coating around my nostrils.What can I buy to help heal the sores and make my nose stop hurti

This : This is a common problem i see with patients who use a c-pap. The proper treatment depends a bit on the exact location and clinical observation so i would recommend you consult a dermatologist. Sometimes i recommend Hydrocortisone cream with a thin layer of zinc oxide paste over that to help reduce inflammation and irritation. Other cases, just a little bit of vaseline. I hope that helps. ...Read more

A strep throat, which will get better a little quicker with antibiotics, usually is quite severe and usually accompanied by a fever to 101 degrees and sometimes swollen tender glands in the neck. > see doctor ...Read more

Burned roof of mouth a few days ago now it still is sore and tissue is swollen could be infected how can I heal it faster?

Burned roof of mouth a few days ago now it still is sore and tissue is swollen could be infected how can I heal it faster?

Without further : Additional injury, the burn should resolve in 10-14 days since the accident, probably another week for you. Sorry, no miracle treatments are available to speed that healing process. Avoid spicy foods and use bland toothpaste. Ask your dentist about a prescription rinse that can help soothe the area while it heals. Good luck! ...Read more

How long does it take  for the hole in your mouth to heal from an extraction? Its still tender. Am i expecting it to heal sooner. Its been sevev days.

Different stages: The length of time for healing depends upon many factors including which tooth it was, the difficulty of the extraction, your age and general health, etc. It can take the extraction site from about 10 days to weeks to close over. It takes about 6 to 8 weeks for bone fill under the surface and may take 3 months for complete bone remodeling. Your dentist should see you for a follow up visit. ...Read more
