Hello Mr Muhammad,
The wall of the mouth that is pierced by the fish then swells and feels painful may be caused by: Vulnus punctum or punctured wounds resulting in disruption of the breakdown of skin, blood and nerve tissue. Infection of the wound causes inflammation of the lining of the mouth (pharyngitis or sores such as thrush). An infected abscess or wound forms pus in it.
It is recommended to check the condition of the mouth and esophagus to the doctor, besides direct examination, blood hematology examinations and X-rays if needed. Treatment will include antibiotics to treat infection, anti-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory NSAIDs, cleaning the wound if necessary, especially if there is an abscess or festering wound.
Tips to do to prevent severity such as maintaining dental and oral hygiene by regularly brushing teeth with fluoride toothpaste, using special mouthwashes such as containing medicine B which contains povidone iodine specifically for mouth and throat gargles, eating nutritious foods that are neutral, avoiding oily, spicy foods. and not hygienic. The first step to overcome pain can be by sucking ice cubes or consuming paracetamol.
