Hello Dinna, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
It should be understood that in order to establish a diagnosis, a complete question and answer is required, a direct physical examination and supporting examinations if needed.
Previously doctors gave medicines in the form of antibiotics, anti-inflammatory and fever-lowering possibly because of suspected bacterial infection in the upper respiratory tract (or commonly called strep throat).
Sprue is a mouth injury that can occur due to being bitten when eating, lack of vitamin C, lack of vitamin B2, lack of iron, psychological stress, certain diseases such as Crohn's disease, HIV, bacterial infections and due to viral infections. Complaints of pain when opening the mouth and talking can be a new complaint due to a collection of pus / abscess, inflammation of the salivary glands or inflammation of the mouth area.
It would be better if you have experienced such disorders, consult a doctor / specialist ENT for further evaluation and management. The doctor will ask questions and answers (including regarding the health of your teeth and gums, because cavities and gum infections can also cause complaints), physical examination and support (as indicated).
It is recommended not to touch thrush, it is recommended to rinse with salt water, avoid the consumption of foods that trigger thrush, consumption of foods rich in vitamin C such as oranges, papaya, or multivitamins; keep oral hygiene (regular toothbrush), can compress canker sores with ice cubes. Sister can take paracetamol to reduce temporary pain before meeting with a doctor.
