Home remedy would be to eat a bland diet, stop all rinses and use salt water. Continue great home care. Check with your md or dds asap. ...Read more

Yeast is the most likely possibility and over the counter fungal cream will fix it. Trauma from recent intercourse if possible. Herpes is an std which can cause this.

A piece of my gum is hanging off in the back of my mouth where my wisdom tooth is coming in. Should I pull it off ?
Absolutely not: Sometimes as teeth erupt the gum tissue that was over the tooth resorbs unevenly. If it is bothering you, or if it does not resolve in two weeks, see your Dentist.

How to treat dry patches on lips I have dry patches on my lips which have been coming and going (mostly coming) for around a year... Sometimes it seems like they are healing and my lips are back to normal and then the dry patches come back. My doctor thi
Lips : Lips can be tricky to treat and you may ultimately need to get a lip biopsy to determine exactly what is going on. I like vaseline and that only as a topical therapy for dry lips. There are other ointments that have different medications in them that can also be helpful, however your physician should prescribe them after a proper diagnosis is made. Actinic cheilitis is a pre-cancerous condition of the lips and should also be evaluated by a dermatologist. With your case specifically, i think that the peace of mind of a biopsy would be the way to go. ...Read more
