Enlarged Circumvallate Papillae

Any advice is greatly appreciated. My symptoms are as follows:

1. Painful/enlarged circumvallate papillae
2. Red spots on roof of my mouth and back of my throat
3. White/yellowish coating on my tongue
4. Sides of my mouth are painful and cracked

I visited my internal medicine dr. last week thinking I had thrush or strep throat. Culture test came back negative for both.

Dr. prescribed Niacin for thrush since I was still having symptoms. However, I don't believe, now, that it is thrush and do not want to take the medicine if it will not help.

Any thoughts on what this could be?

Re: Enlarged Circumvallate Papillae

Hi there!

While I don't have a direct answer for you... I can certainly relate. I have been going through episodes of this and the tests come back negative for strep.

I have been very active on HealthBoards here talking with others with similar issues... I think it would help if you tell us when you first noticed this, if you have seen an ENT, and have you been told that it acid related?

So let's start from there and go down the list. At present... I have been diagnosed with LPR or silent reflux and I am STILL perplexed by it. I am plagued by tonsillitis from time to time... perhaps tonsil debris is causing some of your issues?

Talk soon!
