This can be seen in my profile pic. I guess u could call me a hypochondriac but I would like to know what causes it. I seldomly use tobacco. I use it at the most a few snus pouches a week. When i got them this time i had not so much as touched any kind of tobacco for two weeks.

This could be a case of Oral Mucositis. I would suggest that you immediately refrain from all tobacco products and talk to your doctor immediately. There are prescription strength mouthwashes that are available, like MuGard for example, that will treat your mouth & throat of all sores & infection.

Consult your doctor immediately, and Good Luck!
