Thrush And Sores Around Mouth


Many people have questions about sores around the mouth, but not all of them have answers. Some people ask what they are, some people wonder if they will develop them, and others are concerned that they are a sign of diabetes. These two concerns are valid and it is important to know if you are experiencing any soreness or sores around the corner of your mouth. In fact, most sores are common and nothing to be concerned about. However, some can be signs of certain medical conditions such as diabetes or HIV.

The answer to whether or not sores around mouth are normal is yes. If you do experience a large painful open wound on your tongue or between your teeth there is probably nothing to worry about. While the sores may resemble an open cut or scrape there is no bacteria or anything else that would be considered abnormal. No. Unless your tongue is brown-colored or you also have a brown colored discharge from your mouth there is no reason to be concerned.

If you have pain in your teeth or gums from scratching or eating something else that caused a wound, these sores could be something else. Painful bleeding near your gums or teeth is usually a sign of diabetes and should be discussed with your doctor. If you are having trouble chewing and swallowing normally, or you see small amounts of blood in your stool or on your fingers, you may have a viral infection such as herpes or genital herpes which can cause painful sores. Your immune system is beginning to fight off something that is threatening your health so yes, you should be concerned. Again, no medical condition is going to cause painful gingivitis or genital herpes.

You may also have symptoms of shingles. Shingles can include painful blisters that will itch and burn during the night. Yes, this is still a virus and although it is not contagious, it can still cause you problems and pain during your recuperation. However, if your symptoms last for longer than two days, then it is likely shingles or another virus that is causing your symptoms.

You may have white patches on your tongue and throat, especially if you are a baby. Thrush can be very uncomfortable and painful. The white patches may look like a ring of sores and will be present for several weeks. Yes, thrush is caused by yeast but the yeast will grow quickly and spread under the right conditions. If you are a baby, you probably have another condition that causes white patches on the tongue and throat and it will need treatment.

As you can see, just because you feel pain, swollen, or have white patches doesn't always mean you are sick. In fact, many people don't get sick often enough to worry about these types of things. These are symptoms that occur when your body releases toxins, tries to eliminate those toxins and causes tiny inflammation around the mouth area. It is important to visit your doctor as soon as you can if you are experiencing these symptoms.
