I had a wisdom tooth and an adjacent molar removed two days ago. Everything has healed nicely except a very painful white spot in the very back of my cheek next to the extraction site. What could this be? I have attached photographs for your reference.

By looking at the picture, it looks like an oral ulcer to me. You need not worry, and it sometimes takes more than a week to heal up completely. You can start with Hexidine (Chlorhexidine Gluconate) mouthwash for at least three to four times a day for a week. You can discontinue it after a week. Along with this, you need to take Becosules Z (vitamin B complex) with zinc for ten days, one capsule a day. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her, and with their consent, take the above medicines.
If the problem persists even after 10 days, then you need to visit your dentist for further investigation.
