Perhaps: You may be allergic to the cinnamon or it may just be irritating to the soft tissues of your mouth. Where are the bumps, and did they first pop up after chewing the gum? They are more likely to have been there and you merely became aware of them due to the soreness. If they do not go away within a couple of days, see your dentist for a definite diagnosis.
