I had root canal a year ago. A week before I had Botox on my

Customer Question

Hi there .
I had root canal a year ago .
A week before I had Botox on my masseter muscle to help with my clenching of my teeth habit when I sleep .
The root canal procedure took over 10 injections at least until I was numb.
4 days on I had a mole removed from my chin.
All circumstantial on how these appointments lay .
4 days on I had a terrible pain that hit my top lip like a hundred killer ants biting it and like my mouth had been struck with a match it was so hot!
I've seen about 15 Drs / consultants .
This problem has been on and off for a whole year , slowly lessening .
However still I get white sores type blisters .
I still get a burning sensation in different places randomly.
An oral medicine consultant has told me this is a virus and has given me 3 months of Aciclovir , 800 mg daily .
The experiment is - no flair - must have been a virus .
I'm still getting hear sensations and white sides on and off , I'm only 2 was in on the anti viral tablets , however I'm not convinced this is a virus .
Maybe it's an on going canker sore problem that just re occurs.. Stress and trauma could have caused it initially and now slit triggers it. The sun . Stress . Facial rejeuvanation injections ( not on the mouth )
Hormones .
All possibilities .
I sometimes get a dark red line appear on my lip line also .
The rubber same tat the dentist used during my root canal procedure really hurt my mouth and that is where I had a rash and a lesion first appear at the fist strike of pain .
It's all a mystery . Very frustrating !!!
Can you help with what you think has home on please ?

Hello from JustAnswer.

It will help if you could provide some further information.

Do you have any pictures of these sores that you can attach?

Have you been tried on any medicines other than the antivirals?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No other medication at all . Just the anti virals.
Only recently .
My phone will not allow me to copy and paste the photos of my sores.
Is there an e mail address I can send them to ?

The browser available on phones does not have the same functionality as on a computer. We are not supposed to post private contact information on these communications, since they can be viewed by others.

You can either wait until you are at a computer, or you can post the picture at a file sharing site and let me know the URL, or you can send it to the general e-mail address for JustAnswer customer service (*****@******.***) for them to forward the picture to me (although that will usually only happen during daylight hours). There also is an option for private communication, although that would involve an additional fee.
