The roof of my mouth and my throat are sore and I have a blister on my gums towards the back. What could it be? I'm not sexually active. Worried.

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
