Thank you for visiting health24.com.

This is an indication that your diabetes is not controlled. It is also a possibility that you have a candida infection in your mouth. I suggest that you consult your doctor for a blood test that will give an idea of what your diabetes has been doing over a period of three months. This way your medication can be re-assessed and might be changed accordingly.

The ulcers in your mouth, can be treated with Diflucan, one capsule STAT.

Kind regards
