What Would Happen If Any Kind Of Bug Went In Your Mouth
My daughter is 26 months old and has a bug bite of some kind on her thigh and it has a large kinda knot underneath it but it hasn't come to a head?
This sounds like it: Might be an infection, as opposed to a bug bite. Of course if you're somewhere where there are insects out at this time of year, it's possible. I would recommend that you have her examined by her doctor to be sure. Meanwhile, have her sit in a warm tub or apply warm compresses to the area. If it's itchy, she can have Benadryl (diphenhydramine) orally. Don't try to squeeze it to open it up; you may make it worse. ...Read more

Hey texas city,
the first question to answer is why it came out.
Was it a one in a million taffy pulling on it, or is there a big old cavity under that crown, or did you get hit?
Most crowns that come out are due to a "one in a million" cement failure and just need to be recemented by your dentist. Simple, easy and may need a bit of anesthetic. However, if it comes off repeatedly, get a new crown that â€œgrabs more of the toothâ€.
To build a house you need a solid foundation.
The tooth under that crown needs to be evaluated. If there is a cavity; treat it and get a new crown. If the first one was leaking, donâ€™t put it back on.
If the tooth is fractured you may need more.
Hope this is helpful,

My baby is 7 months and I still have to force feed her. She doesn't open her mouth to feed on any kind. I try to trick her and force the food? Whyyyy
No force-feeding: Babies do not need to be force-fed. If a parent thinks she has to force-feed her baby, she can bring the baby to the doctor and feed the baby while the doctor is watching (explain that this is the plan, when booking the appointment). In most cases, the baby is fine and will drink enough breastmilk or formula to grow normally (which may be a smaller amount of intake than the parent wishes). ...Read more
Can you tell me how can I fix my abnormally large mouth. It isn't the cute kind of big mouth it is the ugly kind and I want to fix it but how?
My first thought is: To encourage you to accept yourself as you are. If you feel that you can't love yourself including your mouth - consider a facial plastic surgery consult. ...Read more
Surgical: Wiring jaws shut used to be done by the maxillo-facial surgeon. I have not seen it used except in short term traumatic fracture reduction (i.E ivy bars). Now I see almost all my surgical patients in surgical fixation with elastic traction. I use existing posterior hooks and use kobayahsi ties for anteriors for this purpose. Most post surgical patients have partial anesthesia (parathesia) anyway. ...Read more
Keep getting weird taste in my mouth. Kind of like what a pill aftertaste. No new meds. What could cause this?
Or fungal infection, dirty tongue, gum disease, systemic disease (e.g. Diabetics), certain drugs (e, g, antibiotics) and dental caries are the common causes for having a foul taste in your mouth. All these conditions are treatable.
A examination by your dentist and by your doctor is warranted and will help reach a diagnosis and proper treatment. ...Read more
I have to wear a mouth-guard at night, but it always falls out. Is there any kind of temporary adhesive I could use?
I was eating skittles earlier, and now I have an odd taste in my mouth, and it kind of feels like an extra layer of skin in my mouth.
Can I get some kind of mouth swab test to see if I am HPV positive if I believe I came in contact with someone who has HPV? Ex: giving head

Absolutely normal: At this age everything goes into the mouth...It is the child's way of exploring their surroundings; every 10 month old will act this way to some degree. ...Read more

Have a lump where tongue connects to mouth. Very little pain kind of hard! Gets small but grows back, what could it be..
When I drink water, my mouth gets dry. Doesn't happen with any other type of drink, only bottled water. Why does this happen?
Hard to say:
Getting a dry mouth from only drinking bottled water is a strange complaint. My first question would be does this happen with tap water also? If not, perhaps it's the bottled water. Despite claims of purity by many bottled water companies studies show significant levels of chemicals in many national brands of bottled water.
If it happens with tap water also then I have no clue. ...Read more

Red splotches in a kind of symmetrical pattern appear around my mouth after shaving if I haven't done so for a few days, something of recent origin. Image at imgur. Com/mujt6tx. Thanks very much!
Razor burn.: May be 'razor burn'. It is characterized by mild to moderate redness and irritation on the surface of the skin. It is transient and there is no infection involved. Pseudofolliculitis barbae (pfb) causes persistent irritation caused by shaving. Pfb can make the skin look itchy and red, and in some cases, it can even look like pimples. Use electric razor. ...Read more

Treatment without dx:
It's hard to treat something unless you know what that something is. Based on your limited comments, I couldn't venture a diagnosis.
The likely cause is a viral illness. Because of the risk of Reye's syndrome, when you have a bug, use only (limited doses) of Tylenol, acetaminophen. ...Read more
I was outside and bent over to turn on the nozzle and a bug flew right into my mouth and I breathed it in?
Observe: This is a common occurence. Watch and if you begin to have a chronic cough, run fever, cough up discolored sputum or have pain or shortness of breath, you would need to be seen. If this is a small insect, the chances are it will disintegrate and be propelled out of the respiratory tree and coughed out or swallowed and with all bronchial secretions. ...Read more
I've heard about some type of mouth piece that could help with cervical dystonia, does anybody have an opinion or maybe an experience with that?
Sensory trick: Some dystonia patients have a "sensory trick", a spot that if manipulated can aid the dystonia. Some occupational therapist have derived fancy braces and devices to help people with this phenomenon. I have not heard about mouth pieces, but I can see where it is possible. I'd inquire with a movement disorders neurologist. ...Read more

You can make the initial visit your family doc, which I think is easiest. Your doc can assess whether or not it is something that needs further evaluation such as biopsy. He/she can do that in office or refer u out to the appropriate doc. If it is a small, circular, dark spot on either side of mouth, it is likely a small blood blister which will disappear in few days...
Good luck. ...Read more
