Mouth Diseases

Mouth sores

07/02/2009

Question:

I have sores on the roof of my mouth and my taste buds keep swelling up, it only lasts for a little while (a few hours to 2 days) but I have been having them every day for the past 2 weeks. Could this be a VD or could it be a reaction to laytext?

Answer:

You have not provided enough information for me to do much more than guess at your problem(s). What you describe does NOT, however, sound like VD (I assume you mean venereal disease). If these annoying sores continue to pop up, you should see your dentist or a dental specialist such as an oral surgeon or oral pathologist. Good luck!
