hi i am 23 and have stopped smoking a week ago. i have got dry lips and on the inside they are sore also my soft palate is yellow with little red dots. could you pls tell me what this could be thanks.
Congratulations on stopping smoking! This is an important step in improving your oral health. Without examining you, it would be impossible to say exactly what this is. Although nothing that you describe sounds serious, if you are concerned, you might want to make an appointment to see your dentist or an oral pathologist for evaluation. Again, congratulation on stopping smoking!
