Mouth sore: May be a canker sore, an area that was traumatized, apthous ulcer, or other lesion. Try swish and spit with warm salt water or half strength hydrogen peroxide/half strength water. You can see your physician for prescriptions like Magic Mouth wash combinations. Oragel on the tip of a qtip applied directly to the lesion can ease the pain. If it doesn't resolve within a week, have it looked at.

Pain can be from infection, trauma, systemic disease, and many other factors. Please see your Dentist for an examination, differential diagnosis, and treatment plan.

I have a little red bump on the inside of my cheek, it hurts to touch what is it?

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.

I have this black blister like thing on the inside of my cheek, it hurts after eating. Help?

Have it examined: Black lesions in the mouth need to be immediately examined to determine their nature.... This is not a normal part of your anatomy. It may be as simple as cheek biting, or it may be more serious. Call a local dentist for an appointment.

Heat and see doc: That sounds like you have an infection. It may drain on its own if it is small or you may need to go see your doctor if it doesn't get better. There are some unusual infections in the neighborhood so see your doctor if it doesn't resolve soon or if it keeps getting larger or more painful. Heat in the meantime may help.

Spots on cheek?: They could be merely pigmentation or something else. One should always be seen personally by a professional for an exam and accurate diagnosis. You should have peace of mind in knowing they are benign or if not, the proper treatment. See your general dentist or an oral surgeon.

I accidently bit the inside of my cheek and it really hurts to talk and eat what should I do?

Give it some time: For most people trauma from cheek biting usually heals on its own within 3-4 days. In the mean time avoid spicy foods and acidly foods and drinks (soda, gatorade, etc.). Rinse with warm salt water after meals to help keep it clean. Sometimes a traumatic injury will ulcerate as pat of the healing process. If that happens it will take about 10-14 days to heal. If unsure have your dentist look.

I get clear fluid filled bumps on the inside of my cheeks. They don't hurt but are annoying, I scratch to pop them. What are they, what causes them?

Mucoceles?: There is no way to know for sure without actually clinically examining you. However, they may be mucoceles which are little fluid filled sacs from blocked ducts on the many minor salivary glands in your mouth. If chronic, have your local dentist examine you just to be sure.

Hi I have a hard lump inside my cheek below cheekbone? What could it be? There's no pain or you can't see it anywhere inside the mouth I'm worried

Investigate: There's no reason for you to be worried. Probably a simple explanation such as a calcified salivary duct or scar tissue from biting your cheek. This is not a problem that can be diagnosed sight unseen. Please call your Dentist for a differential diagnosis and appropriate treatment. You'll be glad you did.

Can you have herpes inside the mouth? I have a painful ulcer on the right side inner cheek. I've had canker sores This ulcer is smaller n more painful

Can you have herpes inside the mouth? I have a painful ulcer on the right side inner cheek. I've had canker sores This ulcer is smaller n more painful

Yes: You absolutely can have oral herpes. Except for the initial episode the location is always on the firmer or "attached" tissue, such as the roof of the mouth or areas close to the teeth. Often they appear at first as small circular lesions which expand and coalesce into a bigger lesion. Typically a response to increased stress of some kind - food, liquid, trauma, lack of sleep, being rundown, etc.

Probabl Viral Infect: It is probably due to a viral infection and most of these clear by themselves but if it is of concern to you it may be wise to have it checked by your doctor. Ask your parents to take you to the pediatrician as you are only 16.
