Canker Sores Causing ENT Pain
mfkane posted:
My girlfriend (26) has always had canker sores, but for the past few years (3-4 years) she has had issues with serious canker sores, and seemingly unexplainable swelling of the gums. For about 2 years, the canker sores have gotten worse and have lead to other problems in her throat (lymph nodes swelling), ear canal swelling, and also pussy liquid in ears that turns to crust. Is it possible for the canker sores to be causing these issues? She has seen several doctors (her PCP, 2 ENT specialists, and a dentist) One of the ENTs suggested that it was Herpetic Infection (but the sore looks nothing like herpes) Any help and advice is appreciated. Thank you.
