I have small red spots/sores under my tongue , on the roof of my mouth toward the back, and in my throat. Mouth/ throat is sore and sensitive.

seek an oral exam

The small red spots could be of many different origins. An avenue to pursue is to see of they are of a bacterial or fungal nature. Please seek your dentist for a differential diagnosis. A thorough exam should yield relief and rule out any underlying pathology. This way the appropriate medication oral or topical canbe given to relive your symptoms and concerns

What should I do for a mouth sore on roof of mouth?

Been there awhile?

If you have a sore on the roof of your mouth think back...did you have something really hot (pizza is a good one) did you eat something sharp (tortilla chips), etc. if this sore is more than a week or 2 old...go to the dentist and have it looked at. May be something you need to get biopsied and treated. So...put you mind at ease and go!!

i have little red dots on roof of my mouth what could it be??? i have no symptons

Red Dots

The diagnosis would depend on how long they have been there. The dots could be irritated minor salivary gllands. This can occur in smokers but not always. Oral candidiasis can also present this way. I would recomend a visit to your dentist to get a definitive diagnosis.

Taste buds on roof of mouth ?

May locations!

Taste receptors or taste buds are generally located on your tongue, soft palate which is the top of your palate way in the back where it gets softer, and the papilla (small bumps) way back on your tongue.

I have a very painful bump on the roof of my mouth. what is it and what should i do?

See your dentist

We can't diagnose your problem without actually seeing you. You will have to visit your dentist to find out what it is. Even if we knew what it was, you will probably require treatment by a dentist. It could be many things, and especially if it's an infection, don't delay making that call to your dentist.

My fiancé has white bumps on the roof of his mouth, it's not hurting him but still bothering him. Do you have any idea what it could be?

Thrush?

Hard to say without being able to see it or knowing much about his general health, but white bumps in the mouth could certainly be thrush. He should see his doctor.
