Don't worry: Probably canker sore. Self limiting. Try dabbing on a little Bezocaine in Orabase (OTC) with a Q-tip. Take Ibuprofen/Advil/Motrin. Should be gone in 7-10 days. The caveat is any white spy that persists beyond 2 weeks should be evaluated by your Dentist.

Medicine: My first thought: bismuth. Many over-the-counter preparations to treat upset stomachs (like pepti bismol) contain bismuth, which can turn your tongue dark temporarily. Laxatives can also cause dark spots in the mouth and inside the colon if you use them all the time.

Mucocele?: It sounds like it is a mucocele, which is the result of a blocked minor salivary gland duct. Some fluid accumulates in what appears to be a small round bubble-like sac. You can pop it with a sterile pin or needle or see if it just goes away on its own. To be sure that is what it actually is, have your dentist take a look at it. Google it for more information.

Get evaluated: There is no way to diagnose "a little brown spot" over the internet. It could range from a freckle to blood spot to something more serious. I doubt it's related to your numbness which really concerns me. It should concern you too. See a local dentist for an evaluation.

Sun block is key: Skin lighteners such as kojic acid, hydroquinone, and plant extracts should only be used if proper sun protection is used. Over the counter products are safe and generally contain 2% kojic acid which limit their effectiveness. They work by blocking the production of melanin which is the natural pigment in the skin cells. Always check with a dermatologist to make sure there are no contraindications.

See if it persists.: You need to show it to your family doctor or dentist. If it is more than a dime in size and if it is a pigmented lesion (black or brown in color) you should get it checked by your doctor or a dentist.
