Sprue On The Tongue Accompanied By White Spots That Never Disappear?
Hello Dok Sprinkled white thrush on the tongue is dangerous or not? Because I often have sprue on my tongue and white spots even though when I work I often drink enough drinking water and enough time and have time to seek treatment and be given mouth ulcer medicine but there is no change … Do I have to control back again?
Good morning, thanks for the question
Recurrent thrush or called recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) is
ulcerations or sores in the deeper mucosal lining of the oral cavity that cause pain, and recur.
Symptoms include single or multiple ulcerations, superficial, oval, and pain. There are three types of RAS, namely minor RAS, major RAS, and herpetiform types. Most cases are classified as minor, where the ulcer is round and oval, shallow, with a diameter of 1-10 mm, and is surrounded by a reddish edge. Minor stomatitis can be cured within 10-14 days without leaving scars in the mouth. Ulcerated lesions that are quite large in size with a white section in the middle part that is clearly visible is probably a major type.
Risk factors for recurrent stomatitis include:
3. Immunological disorders
4. Diseases of the digestive tract
5. Hormonal disorders
9. Nutrition deficiency
History of recurrent trauma in the mouth is indeed the cause of this RAS. Ulcers occur because of being bitten when talking, bad habits, or when chewing, due to dental care, food or drink is too hot, and brush your teeth.
If the complaint is accompanied by the presence of white plaque on the tongue with itching and tenderness in the oral mucosa, a metallic taste, and reduced soy sauce, then it is likely a fungal infection in the oral cavity or referred to as oral candidiasis. Handling is by using antifungal preparations and improving nutritional status and oral hygiene.
RAS repetition is done by maintaining oral hygiene, avoiding stress and consuming adequate nutrition, especially those containing vitamin C, B12 and iron (iron deficiency anemia and B12 also play a role in the incidence of RAS). Maintaining oral hygiene can also be done by gargling using warm salt water or mouthwash. In the major RAS treatment is given by giving topical corticosteroid drugs to accelerate ulceration healing and prevention education above.
Carry out further consultations with your doctor for re-examination if the complaint tends to persist.
That's all, hope you can help. Wassalam.
