Swollen Glands + Cankers + Sore Gums

About 3 months ago i got swollen glands and then my mouth filled with canker sores for about 7 days.  Doctors had no idea what it was an gave me everything under the sun.  I finally one doctor took me off the anitbiotics and gave me a cordizone cream for my mouth which seemed to help.
Over the last 3 days, its all starting to happen again.  I see that im getting canker sores and my glands are swollen and painfull all through my neck and under my chin.  My gums are sore too.
Has anyone gone through this or might they know what it is,....
For some reason i think it might be a mouth infection like gingervitis but going to see the doctor today either way to get some tests done

Please let me know if you could send me in the right direction

Thanks

Hi
Welcome to the forum!
Generally canker sores are harmless. They come and go. They respond to cortisone cream and pain killers and disappear within 14 days. It can get complicated in the presence of deficiency of vitamin B12, folic acid, or iron. Presence of sugar in blood as in diabetes can cause  Streptococcus bacteria to grow rapidly. This can result in swollen glands. Also it may not be canker sores but cold sores caused by Herpes virus. Please talk to your doctor and get tested for the problems mentioned. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

hey there,

i have been searching the web trying to find someone who has had the same symptoms as i have. when i read your discription i knew we must have the same problem. the under side of my tongue is comepletely covered in cankers (as well as some on my throat and inner-cheaks) my glands are totally swollen and the anti-biotics don't seem to be helping. this has been going on for almost a week now, and every day gets more painful. did you ever get a diagnosis?
