I keep getting clear blister in my mouth. What could it be?

Mucocele possibly: This bump inside of your mouth is probably a mucocele. It is caused when the duct to a minor salivary gland gets clogged or traumatized and the saliva backs up forming a fluid filled bump. They are most common on the lower lip but can occur elsewhere in the mouth as well. Small ones can resolve on their own. Large ones (as shown here) require surgical removal by and oral surgeon. ...Read more

Whenever I eat salty foods such as soft pretzels I get a clear blister on the inside of my mouth on my lip. Is that normal?

Whenever I eat salty foods such as soft pretzels I get a clear blister on the inside of my mouth on my lip. Is that normal?

Always?: Has this always been the case? If so, then I am thinking you are just really sensitive to the salt, or maybe even something else (brewer's yeast, etc) in those foods. It may just be causing irritation to the lining of your lips. If it is always in the same location...or if this is a new thing for you, however, I'd probably get it checked out, just in case. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Recently, i've been experiencing swelling in my salivarygland. I have dry mouth and throat, body ache, and a clear blister on my upper lip. What should I do?

The gland may swell more when you are about to eat. Please go see your dentist to determine the cause. If the duct is blocked, serious damage to the gland can occur. ...Read more

Small blister appeared on my top outter lip. No tingling no pain. I tried popping it. Small clear fluid came out now it's so swollen. Help. ?

Cold sore?: A swelling on the lip with a blister likely is Herpes Simplex Virus type 1(cold sore or fever blister). If this is a first episode of HSV 1 it can be more severe. Oral antiviral medication (Rx) can help if taken within 72 hours(or later if very severe). In milder cases Zilactin-B (OTC) is very effective for pain(contains Benzocaine). Denver( a topical antiviral) is modestly effective.*See comments ...Read more
