mysticdoc :

Hello,

mysticdoc :

Is it possible to post a picture here?

Customer:

I dont know, ive never used this website before.

mysticdoc :

ok

mysticdoc :

does it look red ?

Customer:

No, it is slightly lighter than my cheek.

mysticdoc :

may be normal tissue..

mysticdoc :

since there is no pain or soreness this is not concerning.

Customer:

It just recently showed up, and ive had a sore near it, so i thought they were correlated. The sore wasnt painful either though

mysticdoc :

if sore is gone now, this does not sound concerning.

mysticdoc :

Possible from the friction with the teeth.

Customer:

It is mostly gone, but the area around it feels funny. I dont if im being paranoid. I was thinking it was an Std but i havent had intercourse in almost 2 years.

mysticdoc :

No this is not std.

mysticdoc :

Not concerning.

mysticdoc :

Do not worry

Customer:

Okay. Do you think it could just be an oral infection? I do smoke, and i felt weird when i did. So i have stopped since. Is there any over the counter antibiotic i could buy?

mysticdoc :

since there is no pain or ulcer ( sore), this is not likely infection.

mysticdoc :

Listerine mouthwash should be ok.

Customer:

Okay, i have been using listerine a couple times a day. Thank you for your help

mysticdoc :

very welcom

mysticdoc :

very welcome

mysticdoc :
