Sometimes mouth sores can be treated in a matter of days. However, there are cases when these singaw show unusual persistence. When this happens, you should consult a doctor at your soonest possible convenience. Whenever you experience singaw, be on the lookout for the following symptoms:
Sore lasting 2 weeks or more
If your singaw does not subside within two weeks, it is highly recommended to see a doctor. This often points to an immune system condition.
Pain that you can’t control with self-care measures
If your singaw is accompanied by debilitating pain, this is a strong sign of a more serious underlying ailment.
This is a sign of a persistent irritant in your body, one that leads to singaw. This could be a symptom of an underlying ailment.
If your singaw come in clusters, pay more attention to them. You can medicate using Miconazole Daktarin® oral gel to alleviate symptoms, but a visit to the doctor is in order.
If your singaw coincides with skin rashes, this is a telltale sign of a compromised immune system.
A fever is the body’s natural reaction to an infection. When coupled with singaw, this signals a more serious infection as opposed to either symptom when taken separately.
Drooling or difficulty swallowing
This could be indicative of a more persistent fungal infection. This could also mean that your singaw is not alone, as it may have spread to your throat and other soft mouth tissue.
It is important to note that these symptoms above may occur in isolation or together. All of these may be telling of a more serious underlying condition, like a weakened immune system (HIV) or cancer.
