Taste buds: If you are feeling bumps on your tongue that are sore to touch, these are likely inflamed taste buds. That can happen when you have a throat infection or head cold. As you get better, the swelling in the taste buds should resolve. If you see white in the back of your throat, have swollen painful bumps in your neck or get fever, you should see your local doctor. ...Read more

What could a small, itchy, and sore bump on the roof of my mouth towards the back be? My allergies have been really bad lately too, if that helps.

What could a small, itchy, and sore bump on the roof of my mouth towards the back be? My allergies have been really bad lately too, if that helps.

Allergies vs. virus: Considering your allergies have been acting up, that sore bump could easily be an area of allergic inflammation on the soft palate. It could also be part of a mild viral infection that's affecting your throat and palate. I recommend considering allergy treatment with an antihistamine like Zyrtec, (cetirizine) while rinsing with warm salt water twice daily. Give it a week and it should be better! ...Read more

Likely viral : Many viral infections may do this including hsv, which is common. These are usually self-limiting. Some times we find no cause and they still go away on their own. Reaction to certain medications or new foods should be considered. Rarely can this be a herald sign for a more serious underlying or for a systemic infection. See your doctor for a close up exam. ...Read more

Sore on gum: Without a visual exam, it is impossible to know for sure. It sounds like ulcers and/or canker sores. If so, they should heal on their own in 7-10 days. Avoid spicy foods. If they don't heal in a week, have them examined by your dentist. ...Read more

Blocked minor gland : The oral cavity is loaded with numerous mucus secreting cells and minor salivary glands. They can, on occasion, become blocked or occluded, then a clear bubble or vesicle may develop that can spontaneously drain or simply enlarge, then regress. It is not a major problem or concern, but sometimes simple cautery of the site will eradicate the problem. ...Read more

Really small red dots on my tongue maybe i never noticed but they are at the tip of my tongue also i have had little bumps in the back of my throat?

Tough to say: without a visual of what you are describing. It's very possible that it's a normal condition of the tongue because there are indeed many bumps on the tongue. Sometimes a map-like pattern of reddish spots can occur, called geographic tongue, which is harmless. If you have a fever as well, get checked ASAP to rule out scarlet fever which needs prompt treatment. Have someone take a look either way. ...Read more

My gums are receding. It started with the bottom part of my mouth but now also on the top of my mouth. Is there anything i can do?

Yes: If you haven't been having regular cleanings, make sure the recession isn't associated with gum disease. If you're gums are healthy, examine your brushing technique which may be too aggressive. Consider a sonicaire electric brush which cleans without applying too much pressure. Sometimes teeth clenching can contribute to gum recession. Have an evaluation figure out why this is progressing. ...Read more
