White Spot on the Corner of the Mouth
follow up up my question what will i do next?is it curable?Previous Question: http://www.netwellness.org/question.cfm/78831.htm
In response to your "follow up" question, the answer is dependent upon what is the underlying cause of the lesion. If indeed it is the result of a fungal/yeast over growth, then it should resolve over time with appropriate antifungal therapies. If the white lesion is the result of trauma or some form of irritation (chemical or frictional), the source of irritation needs to be removed prior to resolution. If the "white lesion" is due to something else, then as previously mentioned, a biopsy is indicated and the lesion may resolve with surgical removal.
"Curable?" That is dependent upon what is going on, and without seeing the lesion I can't answer that via the Internet.
