Could zpak or hard cough cause red bump in roof of mouth and pain in tongue? My tongue feels like a muscle pulled since last night and the bump sore.

Could zpak or hard cough cause red bump in roof of mouth and pain in tongue? My tongue feels like a muscle pulled since last night and the bump sore.

Zpack no, cough yes: The red bump on the roof of the mouth and pain in tongue is more due to the hard cough than the zpack. If this continues I'd go back to the dentist to have it evaluated. No worries.

Oral cancer: Cancer is not episodic in nature... it does not "come and go". That being said, have your dentist take a look at what might be causing this little red bump.
