In addition, my body quickly catches a cold, especially at night from the thighs to the feet feels kind of needling, to reduce pain sometimes I have to crack or rub with balm so that the new heat can bdr tdr …
Good evening, thanks for the question
Leukoplakia is a condition where there is thick white plaque on the tongue and the edge of the mouth.
The exact cause of leukoplakia is unknown, but it is mostly related to smoking.
Other causes such as oral mucosal trauma due to biting, uneven tooth surface, inflammatory disease, or alcohol consumption.
The exact diagnosis of leukoplakia is based on an oral examination by a dentist. Another symptom of the disease similar to the condition of leukoplakia is a fungal infection in the mouth. Oral fungal infections or so-called oral thrush can usually bleed and whitish plaques look smoother.
Mild leukoplakia usually does not require special measures and can heal by itself. Avoid factors that might be causes such as smoking and alcohol consumption. To prevent this condition consume fresh fruits and vegetables that contain high antioxidants. Antioxidants act as anti-irritants that cause leukoplakia.
Leukoplakia in general is not dangerous, but if the symptoms of leukoplakia are suspected to be malignant (irregular plaque, bleed easily), then further tests are needed to rule out the possibility of oral cancer or HIV.
While the condition of sudden pains is usually caused by a viral infection. Because it is self limiting disease, the treatment is done by increasing the body's immunity. Take care of health conditions, especially in conditions of climate change by consuming nutritious food, getting enough rest, consuming water and immune supplements, and exercising regularly. If complaints of pain in the body does not decrease, you should consult with a doctor to do a physical examination to determine the cause.
That's all, hope you can help
