Please see your doctor again. You could try an antifungal medicine just in case it is a yeast infection and if this doesn't clear it then your doctor may need to give a longer course of Valtrex. Or your doctor may decide to treat you with both types of medicines at the same time.
This may sound bizzar, however have you recently used any Colgate products (mouth wash, toothpaste)? For some reason there has been little coverage about the recent rise in customer complaints regarding Colgate products causing white patches in the mouth in addition others have experienced several symptoms (any 1 or more of the following)- white patches in mouth (gums/tongue/roof of mouth/ back of throat/inside cheeks), burning, itching, lips cracking, receeding gums, actual peeling or shedding of the top layers of skin on gums, tongue, inner cheeks, odd taste. You can google it and get detailed accounts from those that have experienced it. Apparently Colgate recently added an ingredient similar to the chemical makeup of some plastics (I think it said as an added stabilizer), turned out that a great # of people turned out to be "sensitive" to the added potentially toxic additives, they are just now starting to pull some of the products but not all of them.
I am one of the unfortunate people that experienced the white patches, panic stricken with thoughts of cancer, I came across a complaint regarding colgate, which I had been using for 2 weeks for the first time ever. Immediately after stopping the use I began to see improvements, 3 days and all was normal. Just thought I'd give ya a heads up, ya never know. Best of luck to you.
