Hypochondriacal postscript - TMI

I was musing earlier about whether this is sore throat about one which would consult DOCTOR or DENTIST, and in fact cursory examination in mirror suggests to me that what I really have is a small but painful canker sore sort of at the top back roof of my mouth, like right next to where the top wisdom teeth come in - it is noticeably red and sore-looking in that area - the swollen gland in the neck on that side is perhaps a separate phenomenon, or perhaps just a symptom of regional stress/infection?


Minor but uncomfortable, that's for sure...

If you can, soak a cotton ball in mouthwash, and apply to area several times a day.

Lysine supplements help get rid of canker sores.
