Two days ago I performed oral sex on a new partner, and today I have found that there is a small blood coloured lump on the insde of my cheek, it is painless but I can feel it when I run my tongue across it, There was no condom involved, but I do not have any stds, and i’m his first sexual partner, so I’m confused as to what the cause of this bump may be? The condition is idiopathic (cause is not known) recurrent aphthous ulcers is usually self-limiting. So try not to use these, look at the toothpaste labels and avoid sls( sodium laryl sulfate) and see what happens. Medication, cancer treatment side effects or reaction to therapy. Oral Ulcers – When our mouth is overrun by microorganisms, it can cause open sores or wounds to form within the oral cavity. These are referred to as oral ulcers. Some medications are known to cause this skin infection as a side effect.
Two main types of mouth ulcers exist: cold sores and canker sores. COLD SORES, also called fever blisters, usually appear on lips and around the mouth. Canker sores in an affected individual will appear in the mouth as small oval shaped spots that look white. Quite often pus and blood can be contained within the canker sore. Angina Bullosa Haemorrhagica – A condition that generally affects the elderly is ABH (angina bullosa haemorrhagica). Finding oral cavity blisters that are filled with blood can often be an indication of this ailment. Many people can go months without getting a sore.
These usually appear on the underside of the tongue or the inner cheek. In much rarer cases the blister that develops in the mouth with be much larger. The blood blisters that form from ABH generally will burst after a few moments of them forming. This then causes an open wound in the area that has been affected. The aphthous ulcer appears as a white or yellow oval with an inflamed red border. These will appear in the oral cavity after eating. One of the main foods that are known for causing these issues are citrus foods.
The only real way to deal with this issue is to modify one’s diet, cutting out the foods that cause the blisters. Low Platelet Count – There are tiny cells circulating in our bloodstream called platelets. Physical trauma to the area can cause one to appear. In cases where an individual has a very low platelet count, blood blisters can form more frequently in the oral cavity. When there is an instance of one’s platelet count dropping for no apparent reason, it is considered to be a condition called idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). Injury – Damage to the tissue on the inside of the cheeks will often cause blood blisters. This can occur from consuming food that is too hot or very hard, such as toast for example.
As always, you should consult with your healthcare provider about your specific health needs. Blood blisters that are caused due to a nutritional deficiency seem to be particularly set off by a lack of vitamin C and vitamin B12. Prescription Drugs – Another reason for blood blisters to occur is when an individual has an allergic reaction to prescription medications. Medications that are used to treat particular diseases can often react with our body in a negative way. Cheek Biting – Cheek biting is something we have all probably done. It happens when we get into a habit of eating food too quickly, increasing the chances of biting the inside of the cheek. Many cheek biting incidents occur when someone is talking or watching TV while eating a meal.
Oral Herpes – Herpes simplex virus type 1, also referred to as oral herpes, is another ailment where we see blood blisters forming in the inner cheeks, tongue, gums, or the roof of one’s mouth. A person will experience a sensation of burning and pain where the area has been affected. This generally occurs once a person has contracted the infection. There are other symptoms that an individual will experience with oral herpes. These would include muscle aches, fever, and fatigue. It is quite a common occurrence for repeated outbreaks of oral herpes. These symptoms can come and go regularly.
