White patches and swelling is most likely due to thrush or fungal infection and blue mark is most likely bruise due to biting. I would suggest using nilstat oral drops available OTC for thrush and sucking on ice to relieve swelling.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I inquired at our Pharmacy and they were not familiar with "nilstat oral drops". They said they are not over the counter. Is there something else to use. I am going to try at Walmart to get the nilstat. Client said he is sore under chin, directly below the jaw. Is this from trying to swallow? Is there any other med that could be used. They are using the ice cubes and have for about 3 hours and will continue. Thank you.

He can use Orajel Antiseptic rinse available at walmart and if do not find improvement then see your doctor for a prescription of antifungal lozenges, ask your pharmacist if any antifungal lozenges available OTC.

Best wishes.

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.
