When I eat walnuts, my gums become slightly irritated (sore), no itching or swelling, is this an allergy?

Avoid walnut & pecan: You might have oral allergy syndrome, a cross-reaction between allergens in raw fruits, vegetables & nuts & those in birch & ragweed pollens. The resemblance & the consequent symptoms of itchy mouth & throat tickle disappear with sufficient heating of the food. Neither home nor medical cures work so its best to avoid these nuts. An allergist can help sort this out from true walnut/pecan allergy. ...Read more

What medications cause itching gums?

What medications cause itching gums?

None specifically: To my knowledge there are no medications that are specifically known to cause itching gums (as a side effect). See your dentist for an oral evaluation.

Gums addressed: Claritin (loratadine) may only be masking something deeper. Your gum tissues are attempting to tell you that you may have a neuralgia, autoimmune disease, shingles, or general reaction to something you are being exposed to. All of which are fairly serious. Please visit a rheumatologist or allergist, and if you ever have trouble breathing or swallowing call 911. ...Read more

Gingivitis: Since you are only 18 years old, this usually is a symptom of gingivitis, which is fairly easy to treat (unless you have ljp or post ljp, then it would be hard to treat). Gingivitis is inflammation of the gum. A good cleaning would be adequate. Ljp would involved antibiotics, scaling and root planing, laser, grafting, and follow ups with strict recall appointment. Ljp destroyed bone severely. ...Read more

My right upper back part of my gums have been itching profusely. I've managed to itch them. I've also noticed a little white sore or bubble. Soar gums?

Possible infection?: It could be an infection, so therefore have it checked out as soon as possible by a dentist. Although it could be something else, and may not even need any treatment, it's better to be safe than sorry. You don't want to take the chance on a much more serious flare-up, especially during the night or the weekend when no dentist is available to help resolve the issue. ...Read more

I have itching all over the body and cuts in gum in mouth and burning toung.

How long?: If these problems just started a couple of days ago, that may be just from a viral infection if a drug reaction has been ruled out. On the other hand, if this is caused by a drug recently, you need to see a doctor ASAP. There are many causes for itching and thus a dermatology consult may be warranted if the problem has persisted for more than 2 weeks or is getting worse. ...Read more
