When did this appear?
Is it painful?
Do you have any medical conditions or take any medication?
reflux, stomach ulcers esophageal yeast infection
How old are you?
And what medication are you on?
nexium fluconazole ranitidine carafate cholystyramine atenolol
I see, this may be due to an infection, the candida may be on your tongue
I would recommend you have this swabbed to determine what the cause is
ive been on the fluconazole since the 14th
It may not be working, or it may be due to a bacterial infection
Are you there?
ya why wouldnt the diucan work
It may be due to a different candida species that does not respond to diflucan
what can i do for it
You may rinse your mouth with salt water 3 times a day, that should promote healing
anything else? could it be from reflux
If it does not start to heal within a week, then you may need a biopsy or swab
Reflux should not cause this
You're quite welcome
If you have any questions in the future, you may request me and I will answer at any time
