    Usually low B12 causes general mouth soreness, ulcers, swollen & ridged edges to the tongue. Not sure about sore throat though? Might be worth just gargling with warm salt water for a couple of days to see if that clears it. If there are white patches in your mouth it could be oral thrush, a sign that the immune system is not working properly. Marion

      Probably about a teaspoon of salt to a small tumbler of water. I usually would do it morning and evening, after cleaning my teeth. You could do it three times by adding another session after lunch. Marion
