I got very sick recently. For a few days, I stopped brushing and flossing because I was very weak to do these. Now, I have several ulcers on the tip and side of my tongue. I also have two ulcers on my top and bottom lips. They make eating, drinking and talking quite hard, as they get in the way of my teeth. The pain gets worse after I eat anyting. My right cheek had become swollen. I get stabbing pains behind my ear on the left side.
Will the ulcers go away or do I need to see a dentist? I was told that brushing the ulcer with salt until it bleeds would help, however I can't stand the pain. What else can I do to relieve the pain? I need some advice, please. Thank you very much.
