From your history, you likely have oral candidiasis. You can take these measures for the relief of sore throat and rashes on tongue and gums.

1) Avoid spicy food intake.

2) Use Nystatin oral drops 2 to 3 drops gargles thrice daily.

3) Use Kenalog (Triamcinolone acetonide) oral base gel BD (twice daily).

4) Tablet Ibuprofen 400 mg thrice daily for three to five days.

5) Capsule Omeprazole 40 mg OD (once daily) on an empty stomach for seven days.

The Probable causes

Spicy food intake, and poor oral hygiene.

Investigations to be done
