Palate irritation


I noticed from few days ago some irritation of soft palate. Here is the picture

I am terified. The dentist says that could be from food, I don't know, maybe it is from more time ago but I didn't noticed.

2 days ago I felt little pain when eating, now is ok. I took pics and seems that was darker monday than today.

I am smoker and 40 yrs old, complete mental dissapointed. Can sone one tell me what can be?

Sorry, english is not native.

You may have oral thrush, a fungal/yeast infection or bacterial infection.
Is there any way you can quit smoking?
Your dental, oral and general health will improve dramatically!
Try "Oil pulling" with coconut oil every morning before breakfast.
Avoid smoking, alcohol, spicy foods for few days.
Consuming coconut oil will also help, as it has many medicinal properties, including anti-fungal activity.
best wishes,
Another reason to quit smoking is 50% of oral cancer patients die within the first 5 years of diagnosis. Since dentist didn't go for biopsy you likely don't have cancer.
