My uvula is swollen...

My uvula is swollen no pain but touching back of my tongue. Just the tip of the uvula there's yellow dark spots. Is this really bad?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

I just been eating ice I feel no pain but my uvula just looks longer touching my tongue. It was 2 days ago rite before having a really drunk night

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. Just that night i drank I also smoked marijuana

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

I have reviewed your pictures.

Well as you describe, your Uvula could be irritated due to alcohol and marijuana and result in swelling.

Now, you should do oral betadine gargles.

Also, take OTC Zantac, Motrin, and Claritin.

Apply OTC Orajel on the affected area.

And continue sucking ice cubes.

You take a multivitamin supplement and vitamin C lozenges.

Eat soft foods.

Hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids.

Avoid spicy, very hot food and beverages.

If your symptoms will persist then see your doctor for further evaluation and management.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
