What would resemble a canker sore is on the inner cheek wall of my mouth, next to my tonsil. On my tonsil, is a small wide dot that hurts to touch. I only know it causes pain is because I am prone to tonsil stones and tried to dislodge it with a sanitized tool that is purposed for that. It did not dislodge and is causing that tonsil to ache. Bouts of sneezing and difficulty breathing keep coming and going. I tried to work out as a normal and it was incredibly difficult. My body aches, I feel pressure through my nose up into my eyebrows/lower forehead and my head feels foggy. I do not have a fever. I am currently taking antibiotics which I know need to be finished. I can provide quality pictures to help.

General Q and A Answer A64902
It is more likely that you have a viral infection or inflammatory reaction associated with stress.

dryness of mouth and reduced fluid intake might be the cause of your recurrent salivary stones and such dryness can also cause reduced dental hygiene and hence recurrent infections.

You can use over the counter antihistamines like benadryl and anti-inflammatory medications like Ibuprofen which can help reduce your symptoms. Topical preparations like mucopaine can be used to relieve the pain due to the sores and ulcers.

Consult your doctor who can examine you and if the issue is related to herpes infections, then the need for prescription antivirals may be indicated.

I hope this helps.
