JA: Hello. How can I help?
Customer: I'd like to talk with a doctor regarding a problem that I have with my neck, right under my jaw.
JA: What are all your symptoms? Are you taking any medication?
Customer: I am not taking any medications. I have this problem for some time now, I visited my GP, we made some tests and according to her everything is fine but I don't feel that is right because the problem is still here. I had US of the neck and I was told that there is nothing to worry about but my tongue is covered in white and my lymph nodes are a bit enlarged.
JA: Got it. When was your last doctor visit? What did you discuss?
Customer: 2 weeks ago. She told me that all is good. Meanwhile I had a blood test done and everything appears to be normal.
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I don't think so.

I am sending a picture. The feeling of the tongue is as of burned. All the time. And the nodes are not big but I can definitely feel them as a lumps on both sides of my neck. It is difficult to swallow sometimes and very uncomfortable for the last 2 days.
Customer: replied 10 days ago.
I do all of this for month now and there is no change. I saw my dentist and he said thet there is nothing to do with the teeth or gums. I even had an X-ray and from his side all is fine as well.

Ok, that's good. We will start first with the cleansing of the tongue while doing tooth brush and gargles. And see the results after 15 days.

Listerine mouth wash and glycerin for tongue application

Great. Thank you for your time.

Glycerine will clear up your tongue and Listerine will keep oral hygiene.
