Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I noticed it a few days ago. The lump is not associated with pain or soreness.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Any oral lesion or pimple to subside within one week. The lesion could be due to trauma or exposure to some agent. If the lesion persists for more than one week, then you will need to see if it is increasing in size or turning more red or inflammatory with time. I suggest you topically apply Dentogel or Dologel CT (Choline salicylate and Lidocaine 2 %) oral gel over the pimple inside the cheek. You can also do lukewarm salt water rinsing five to six times daily. The pimple will start waning out if it is just a harmless lesion. I would suggest you rinse your mouth at night with Chlorhexidine mouthwash for a month to reduce the chances of oral ulcers. How is the consistency of the lesion hard, or is it a soft pimple?

Thank you.
