Sore in Mouth.
astroprojection posted:
recently i've been having issues with multiple different types of sores in my mouth. first it was small red spots, then it was large white patches with bloody veins where my tonsils used to be located, and now there is one black sore as you can see in the picture.

i thought it might just be a little blood patch but having all these issues in a row makes me think otherwise.

Your photo didn't post, but even a photo is not a substitute for a hands-on examination by a good ENT. I would never make a "diagnosis" based solely on a picture.

There are many different types of mouth "sores" from aphthous stomatitis to herpes stomatitis. Getting a proper diagnosis is essential to finding a solution or effective treatment, so please arrange to see an ENT.
