But wouldnt my whole throat hurt when i swallow and not just one side of my throat...what can this be if just one just hurts when i swallow, the right side. what do you think that bump is on the right side of my mouth that has what looks like a canker sore on it?
Ive had plenty of canker sores before but they are flat ones. This time its on a bump on the side of my inside cheek?
It is very difficult to make a diagnosis without examination but the possibilities for your symptoms are mucocele,tonsillitis and pharyngitis.Canker sores are small shallow ulcers that appear in the mouth and often make eating and talking uncomfortable. They are generally caused by Stress, tissue injury, eating certain foods,impaired immune system, vitamin B-12, zinc, folic acid, or iron deficiency; and gastrointestinal tract disease, such as Celiac disease and Crohn's disease.Mucocele is a pseudocyst that is associated with mucus extravasation into the surrounding soft tissues.
Pain from a canker sore generally lessens in a few days and the sores usually heal without treatment in about a week or two. Avoid spicy or acidic foods during this time.You can use topical ointments like numbing ointments, such as benzocaine (Oragel), anti-inflammatory (steroid) gels,benadryl allergy liquid mouthwash,oral preparations of steroids and vitamin supplements.
Tonsillitis and pharyngitis may be responsible for your sore throat.Warm saline gargles and antibiotics are needed for their treatment.
If the sores last for more than 3 wks or start spreading then pls consult a dermatologist.
Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or in case you have any additional queries.
and can i add tthat when i swallow only one side of my throat hurts, likes i have a sore throat on one side?
