I have a small section of skin starting from the bottom of my inner gum to halfway up the flappy skin piece on the lower part of the tongue. It is not very bad looking. It appears as if it is just a normal burn from some hot food or drink, though I do not recall ever burning myself. It occurred sometime between before two days, which also happens to be a period in which I had diarrhea and no appetite. It is not super red and seems normal in color, has dead white skin on the surface that I can easily rub off with my finger. My primary concern is that there is more pain than I usually have from a burn, especially while chewing. There has been minimal oral sex within the past month, and neither she or I have had any sexual relations with anyone else.
