Question: Roof of Mouth Sore After H1N1


 KnowThyself - Mon Oct 26, 2009 11:45 pm

I came down with H1N1 on Tues, my fever and ill effects subsided by Saturday except for a sore throat. Sunday I developed an aching on the roof of my mouth which makes eating foods that are crunchy, hot or cold very hard and painful. Even room temperature water causes moderate pain. I don't think this is H1N1 related, but I'm not a doctor either. :)

Thank you to all the doctors and nurses on here that help to provide this awesome service.

User avatar Hello,
I have not heard of any documentation for this type of reaction but each person responds to infection in her own way so it could be. However, I would expect it to go away within a few days and if not, you should follow up with your doctor to see if there is something unrelated going on.

Best wishes.
