Customer Question

My tongues burns and has white areas with sores.
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: On and off for 1 1/2 years. White patches on under side with open sores. Painful and nothing has helped. Have used medications for fungal infections, antibiotics, have not helped. No relief.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I am a R.N. and have been seen by my primary doctor and, in past, by oral surgeon last year. At that time, it came and went several times and they could find nothing. Now in is ongoing without relief.
