White patch on tongue?

I have had a huge canker sore type thing on my tongue for the past 4 days. I went to the doctor for it and she said it had to do with a viral infection. Well it hurts VERY badly to where I can't eat or talk correctly. Does anybody know what I can do to lessen the pain and make it heal faster? Would appreciate some ideas!!! Xoxo

    I'd suggest you stay away from irrtants, such as hot food, spicy food, alcohol and coffee. A simple home solution may involve just rinsing your mouth with salt water, things like Bonjella can help soothe the pain temporarily.

    If symptoms persist for more than a week I suggest seeking out medical advice.
