Dental and Oral Health (Adults)

Sore Bumpy Throat

03/16/2010

Question:

Last June I developed a slightly swollen upper lip, sore and bumpy back of the throat, post nasal drip, and three canker sores all within a two or three day period. Within a week or so the canker sores disapeared. The throat went back to normal around September or October. My lip has remained swollen to this day. In the past few days my lip has been noticibly more irritated, and my sore bumpy throat has returned. The only change I`ve noticed is the warm weather returning. Otherwise my habits are the same.

Answer:

Without examining your mouth, it would be impossible to say exactly what this is. If you are concerned, you should make an appointment to see an oral pathologist for evaluation.
