What causes wounds on the gums which are like blood stripes and painless small bumps filled with fluids on the inside cheeks?

What causes wounds on the gums which are like blood stripes and painless small bumps filled with fluids on the inside cheeks?

Biting/salivary duct: repeated bitting can cause the strips on the cheeks. If it around the gums near the teeth = most likely gingivitis.
