Customer Question
I had a severe burn...
I had a severe burn in my mouth a week ago. I am on antibiotics but now the necrotizing skin is starting to slough and causing horrible breath. I am using H2O2 1.5% as a mouthwash three times a day but is there anything else that can be done? Do I need to see my dentist for manual debridement? I have not been able to eat solids due to the pain so have been subsisting on yogurt and chicken broth. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

That is indeed very unfortunate situation.

You will need see an oral surgeon for debridement of the sloughing tissues.

That will expedite the healing process.

A compounded miracle magic mouthwash will help with the healing process as well as the bad breath.

The specific formulation may vary and may also include steroids and antibiotics; one such cocktail consists of 2 percent viscous lidocaine, diphenhydramine, and Maalox. Other “cocktails” add dexamethasone solution as an anti-inflammatory, or antibiotics such as tetracycline.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

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.
