I really need some advice because i am panicking.
First of all excuse my english because i am from europe.
Ten days ago i noticed with my tongue a lession in my inner cheek that wasnt painful. I didnt pay any attention, until 3 days later when i realised that it was still there, a bit bigger. I went straight to my dentist who said that i didnt look important. Anyway, two days later i watched it in the mirror and it was bigger than the last time. I went to an oral specialist who reassured me that is not cancer. He said that is an irritation probably form chewing hot gums and infected with candida due to low immune system. He prescribed oral pills for 7 days. Today is day 3 and it is still there. No improvement at all, and a bit bigger. If it was thrush shouldn't i see some improvement by now? It is big painless, with red borders. The borders are expanding but the center seems to be healing. I am freaking out!!!Please any advice would be enormously apprieciated.

  • Try not to panic. Stress makes everything worse. It sounds to me like you have food allergies stemming from a clogged digestive tract. I know that sounds like a long way from your mouth where the symptom is manifesting. The point of the symptom is to get your attention (which it has) but the real problem is frequently digestive. The candida diagnosis is right on, and is best treated with cleansing, diet, and probiotics. Please consider seeing a naturopath and doing an intestinal cleanse. I bet your problem will clear up pretty quickly. Good luck!
