I'm a 30 year old male, other wise healthy. I had a fever about 20 days ago and it came with a lot of oral symptoms. I was treated with nystatin (for oral yeast) and valtrex (for oral herpes), but I'm not sure that I had either condition. The symptoms did get better for a while while i was on the valtrex and nystatin, but they never quite cleared entirely. Now I'm once again suffering with a painful tongue now, about 10 days after i finished my meds.
The tongue feels like its been scalded with hot water. PLEASE let me know if anyone has seen or experienced anything like this.
Have you taken these two meds before? I'm wondering if you're having a reaction to one or both of them. I wish I could be of more help but, I'm not sure what it is. Can you get back in to see your dentist?
