Hello doctor,

There is a colorless ridge on the roof of my mouth on the hard palate. This thing has been troubling me for near about eight months now. It occurs occasionally, swells up and burns, and then at the end of the day, it subsides. It stopped for a month, but now again, it comes for like a day and then subsides for two or three days. Please tell me what it is. Currently, for allergies resulting in sneezing and cold, I take Duanose nasal spray.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

It looks like a bleb which can be due to trauma to the hard palate due to spicy and sharp food. You should stop taking hard and spicy food. Do you smoke or consume alcohol? You should start taking antacids and apply local antiseptic and local anesthetic gel over the bleb. Do chlorhexidine mouth gargles.
