Hi doc.

I have a burning sensation on the corners of my mouth and my tangue is white. Sometimes I feel the burningon my lips. I have consulted my GP and the medication he gave me did not work. What could it be?

Selby, it sounds like you might have oral thrush or maybe even a vitamin C deficiency, but I can’t say for sure without examining you first. The best would be to contact your GP and let him know that his medicine isn’t working and ask him what he is going to do about it. Good luck.
