was using my tongue scraper & i am guessing i hit the soft palate with it which turned it red. It was slightly painful in the beginning but later on turned very bad. I can't even swallow my own saliva without facing so much pain. I went to a general physician who provided me with a mouth ulcer gel & some capsules she says will help my palate. its been 2 days since the medication & my mouth is getting worse. I have to constantly keep a glass next to me for my saliva plus my teeth on the red side have also started to ache. I can't even sleep now.
