Hello, I've had tonsillitis for almost a week now,
Patient :Hello, I've had tonsillitis for almost a week now, but have since been taking azithromycin tablets to help treat it, and it is working well. My other problem though is my gums. Ever since my tonsilitis settled, my gums have gone swollen and tender, particularly at the very back near my bottom molars, a flap of gum tissue has been detached and sits on top of the very back molars. This is causing me grief as I can't eat anything without feeling like I'm consuming knives or broken glass, as my gums pinch together whenever I open my jaw. I also have a bad taste in my mouth, and to top it off, my tongue is covered in ulcers/canker sores, there's a large one in the centre and the sides and tip of my tongue are covered in little sores which irritate me. I also have a canker sore on the outside of my bottom lip. I would like to know if all these are connected in some way? Or if there is a possibility of getting this treated. I can't deal with this anymore, it's gotten too painful. Please help.
