Dr. A.S. Desai :

Hello, Welcome to Just Answer

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Are you available for chat now?

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Is there any redness or watering from the eyes?

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Apart from allergy one needs to rule out a possibility of viral cause such as herpes simplex as it is known to cause viral conjunctivitis and skin lesions.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Do you have anything else to ask in this regard?

JACUSTOMER-ryab8xdt- :

no redness or watering of eyes I don't have skin lesions just a small red rash.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Well with no ocular symptoms itmay not be viral conjunctivitis but looks like the small rash in the mouth could even be an aphthous ulcer.

JACUSTOMER-ryab8xdt- :

If so what what would you do/

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Treatment of an aphthous ulcer is in the form of use of mouth wash, local application of anesthetic ointment, analgesics, avoid spicy food.

JACUSTOMER-ryab8xdt- :

ok
