I have red oral lesions in 3 quadrants of my mouth that came up rather suddenly about 3 weeks ago. It is extremely painful whenever something hot or cold hits them. I went to the dentist and he prescribed antibiotics (clindimycin), a foul-tasting oral rinse (chlorhexidine 0.12%) and an oral paste (triamcinolone acetonide 0.1%). I'm on my second round of this treatment, to no avail. The sensitive area is spreading, and on my third visit to the dentist, he admitted that he doesn't know what it is. I'm in agony and in desperate need of some help.

  • Check into Lichen Planus. It commonly shows in the mouth and is an autoimmune disorder. There is no known cause of it, but in theory if you improve your immune function it will get better.
