Customer Question
Hi, during the past...
Hi, during the past week my tongue has been really sore. My lips tingle, and the inside of my mouth has felt rough. My gums are becoming really sensative...it's hard to brush. When I garle with mouth wash it burns really bad. What could be causing this. Is this something I should see a doctor or dentist about?

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
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.
