Usually goes away: What you describe ranges from being an ulcer, to an allergic reaction, to an area of trauma. If it grows every day for 5 days or more, or if it doesn't disappear in 10 days, you should visit your doctor. Usually these just disappear in a short period of time. Try dissolving a teaspoon of table salt in warm (soup temp) tap water and swish it inside your mouth for 5 minutes twice daily x 5 days. ...Read more

Bit the inside of my cheek a couple times and now have a small bump that is dark red/black; is this just dried blood? Feels like a pimple
Most likely: It's dried blood or a blood blister from repeated bites. It happens all the time with sores on our tongues & cheeks. We bite them once then keep biting them since they protrude slightly. Slow down when eating, be extra careful & it should heal in 2-3 days. If you keep biting it or it stays a problem see your dentist. They may be able to grind a small amount of 1-2 teeth to help you stop biting. ...Read more

Burning bump: First, whatever you do, stop dipping. That causes oral cancers, plain & simple. It might not mean anything to you now, but in coming years if you were told that you had cancer, it would! Secondly, without actually examining you personally, we can't diagnose lesions such as this. Obviously, something is just not right. If you can't get an answer that makes sense to you, consult with an oral surgeon. ...Read more
