Ear, Nose, and Throat Disorders

small ulcer on superior area of hard palate

06/23/2010

Question:

I have hay fever, asthma and other food allergies which increases/decreases according to the season and where I live. I have always had a itchy roof of my mouth (hard palate) for as long as I can remember, I usually use my tongue, or toast or something and drives me and my family mad. However more recently this has become more itchy without hayfever symptoms . Now it is a approx .2 x.2mm size type ulcer whic has a white macerated edge and then redened surroundingarea. I have a referral to a ent specialist, there is only one in town who will not be returning off leave till 3 weeks time. I am now becoming very concerned as I am now more aware of this and not sure if it is slowly getting worse as it is itchy all the time. Any ideas. I believe this tiny itchy lump has been with me for at least 15 years but has only now become a nuisance and concern.
