Oral and abdominal issue

In the past i have had issues with stomach infection, which after treatment got cleared up, however the question that i am going to ask is Tongue/Mouth related and i somehow feel that this has to do with gut as well, ever since i have been treated with the Gut issue, i am facing bad breathe problem, not severe, tongue is coated more often not and i see swollen red bumps sometimes(looks like strawberry), do you think, that it could be related to the stomach problem, shall i go visit a dentist?

Yes you should definitely visit a dentist for a proper clinical examination and also, these problems can have local as well as systemic causes..... you might have been prescribed broad spectrum antibiotics for your stomach infection because of which some good bacteria also get reduced in number, affecting the microflora of the mouth..... you need to maintain your hydration level by proper fluid intake..... you should clean your tongue with your toothbrush regularly ..... with proper diet and oral hygiene maintenance, this problem can be reduced to a great extent..... nonetheless, as previously mentioned, a visit to the dentist will be more useful.... Regards....

Your oral problem may quite likely be related to your stomach problem, further details on which shall be helpful. There are common conditions like GERD, in which oral lesions manifest. Also, multiple repurcussions on oral health from gastric disease may occur- like oral and gastric ulcers- H Pylori bacteria induced or otherwise.
An "Oral Medicine" specialist is best suited to diagnose your problem based on comprehensive check up, correlation with gastric disease and relevant investigations. Treatment goals can then be formulated.
