Age 54 and going crazy with Scalded Tongue Syndrome
I am 54 and in menopause. I can't take any product such as Premarin for my hot flash symptoms, etc. as I have a predisposition to blood clots.
About 4 months ago I noticed the tip of my tongue was sensitive and sore and it has gradually taken over my entire mouth. The lesions and blisters move around the interior of my mouth and tongue, sometimes leaving blisters on the roof of my mouth. I've gone to the dentist and a nose, mouth, throat specialist who diagnosed it as STS, and told me that I'll have to ride it out. The specialist suggested zinc, but the zinc has not helped. I am on oxycodone for the pain as it is quite debilitating. Any suggestions? Please?
