It started with just a sore throat and fever that lasted for about four days. My throat no longer hurts, but I now have five or six ulcers on the inside of my bottom lip, one on my lip, and some on the roof of my mouth. I have a headache, the tip of my tongue is red and sore, and my gums are very red, feel swollen and painful, and bleed very easily. On top of this, it sort of feels like my wisdom teeth are coming in; my gums back there are really swollen and pretty uncomfortable if I try to bite down.
I saw the doctor and she was quick to dismiss the ulcers as being caused by stress, and prescribed an antibiotic for what she said is probably strep, despite my throat no longer hurting. She also said the lymph nodes in my neck felt swollen. I've been on the antibiotic for 4 days and have developed a few more ulcers since the doctor visit. I can hardly stand to eat anything solid or brush my teeth. This is pretty miserable and frustrating. Help?
