I have been taking Bactrim for about a week now for a severe sinus infection and for some reason now on the bottom of my tongue I have a cut like thing down what looks like a vein in my tongue and a couple white spots around it and it hurts whenever I move my tongue like to talk or eat what should I do???
Sounds like you may have developed thrush in your mouth because of the antibiotics. Eat yogurt several times a day and get a mouth rinse at any drug store or mass retail store called Biotene. It replaces the natural enzymes that should be in your mouth and has NO alcohol. It will help take the soreness out and is found with the mouthwashes or toothpastes. The yogurt will help but if it isn't alot better in about 3 days, let your doctor know and you might have to take some flucanozole.
