Thrush Due To Being Bitten?
My thrush has not subsided for more than a week. Initially due to being bitten then inflamed on day 2 and so on. I have eaten u0026amp; drink food that contains vit C. But it has not yet healed. What do doctors think? Thank you
Hello Fikri, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Thrush or medically referred to as aphthous stomatitis is a wound in the oral cavity that causes pain and is also uncomfortable, the wound can swell and redden due to inflammation.
One cause of thrush is injury, direct injury to the area in the oral cavity can cause thrush. This can happen, for example, by accidentally biting your lips, teeth that are too sharp, using braces or chewing hard food.
Generally, canker sores recover and heal themselves within 1-2 weeks without special treatment. But some things can be done to reduce pain and discomfort such as:
Using a straw when drinking to reduce pain due to friction of a straw with thrush Using toothpaste that does not contain ingredients that trigger irritation and use soft toothbrush Avoid eating hot, spicy, hard, sour food and eating slowly not in a hurry so the wound on aunt sores can not be bitten continuously Avoid all triggers that can aggravate sores sores But if thrush causes pain that is disturbing or increasingly swollen, some treatments can be given for example:
Pain relievers, pain relievers for mouth ulcer can be in the form of ointments for the mouth and mouthwash such as creambenzoacainedanlidocaine Corticosteroid drugs to relieve inflammation in the early stages and can also reduce pain. However, you should consult a doctor first if you are going to use this class of drugs. Because the ulcer will usually heal itself within 2 weeks, special handling is not needed. For a while you can do the steps above and avoid triggers for example because you are bitten try to eat food slowly and not in a hurry. You can consult a doctor if the sprue that appears does not heal within 3 weeks, the sprue is accompanied by signs of infection such as large and deep wounds that can be covered with pus.
