I have read your post and observations. Do you have a specific question? Would you prefer information about periodontitis specifically?

What is the white frothy puss shes spitting up? Why is she oozing through her skin? Why is her skin rolling off
Expert:  Dr. Captain replied 9 months ago.

Frothy material in the mouth could be saliva, mucous, pus, or candidal materials - from your description so far, it's still not clear. Can you snap a picture of it? The same is true of the oozing skin, or rolling off.. Those are important concerns that require photos and/or more information.

It seems that you're not able to chat at the moment - certainly not a problem. I’ll convert the chat session to a Question & Answer session. That way, we can both continue to post questions/comments/answers, without time restrictions, until you feel satisfied with the information you’ve received.

Feel free to click "reply" to post answers and more questions at any time. When you click “ reply” and type out your comment/question, I will be notified to come back and answer. You are not charged more than the initial deposit, no matter how long it takes for us to chat, so this will just take the time restrictions away for both of us. When you feel satisfied that I have addressed your concern completely, you can then press "accept" and rate the answer so that I may be compensated for the time.
