Hey everyone I have a serious problem and issue that cannot be addressed until Monday August 21st 2006. About three days ago I started to feel very sick almost flu like, I have been experiencing a fever of about 101 for two days. My symptoms are as follows:
#1 Headache
#2 Canker Sores/ Mouth Ulcers 3 of them #3 Bleeding Gums and Painful Swollen Gums
#4 Flu like feelings and overall feeling of flu
I am a healthy woman, 36 years old and living in New York.
I have been researching the internet and speaking with family and may consider having Coxsackie Virus...not sure how I even got to be this ill so suddenly but cannot see a DR until Monday.
I would greatly appreciate any reply that would help me self diagnose and seek relief especially for my mouth, canker sores and swollen bleeding gums are intolerable and very painful.

  • Hydrogen Peroxide- one cap full - hold it in your mouth and swish around the canker sores- I got three of them right now ,too and am administering same treatment. It is not painful and is helping tremendously.I hope you feel better by now!

  • If you get canker sores at least once and month and are willing to report your results by e-mail once a week, you can get a free supply of a new product now in testing for prevention of canker sores. Go to orahealth.com and look at the bottom of the page.
