welcome to justanswer,
are you having a visible leision on the palate?shape /size/colour of the affected area?
any hot foods eaten?
difficulty in swallowing?
any dental procedures done recently?any oral infection?
other symptoms like bodyache /fever?
are you taking any medications regarding other health issues?
soreness of palate may be due to many reasons
ie bacterial,viral,autoimmune dis, vitamin/mineral deficiencies, low immune status in which our normal oral bacteria becomes active and start invading own body cells ..Redness/soreness in palate may be related to tonsil infection in most cases (however symptoms of tonsiler infection may be absent)
my advice to you!
I suggest you now a few home remidies ,but if the symptoms persist please visit your doctor .
Take around half teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water and do gargle atleast 3 times in a day(morning after you brush,afternoon(after your lunch) and at night before you go to sleep. this will decrease the soreness as salt have antibacterial effect and will decrease the oral flora(bacteria)that may be causing such symptoms.
Take multivitamins as deficiency of folate (folic acid), vitamins B-6, B-12 and zinc may also cause this condtion.
Take OTC numbing agent, such as Orabase-B ,this will help in relieving pain and protect palate from further inflamation.
Bed rest is must, dont have any stressfull activities.
Dont get exposed to cold enviorment,as this will increase the pain and will delay the healing time.
Avoid any contact with dust (can use a mask)
Avoid spicy,acidic,hot food this may increase healing time.
i hope these all remidies will help you to get recovered soon ..
but as i said earlier if the condition does not improve, please visit doctor for throat evaluation as antibiotic therapy may be needed in severe cases (if bacterial infection is suspected)
wish you good health.
