About 8 months ago, during a period of dry mouth, I developed a bubble on the roof of my mouth (soft pallete area) that bothered me for a couple weeks and then vanished. About a month ago, a similar thing appeared near the same place. It looks very similar to a pimple, and varies in size, depending on how aggravated it is. In the morning, it is barely noticeable and pretty flat, just a white mark. But if I eat something like a potato chip, it can "fill up" or become swollen. It appears to be fluid filled and even looks like it has a cream colored head to it. I've tried to pop it, but to no avail, and I usually just aggravate it more. Some days it looks like it is going to go away, and then it swells up again. It's not very big, only the size of a large pimple. Should I be concerned?
It sounds like some kind of small infection. Possibly a foreign body lodged, or blocked minor salivary gland, or could even be tooth related. You should have it looked at by a dentist or an oral surgeon to see if any treatment is required.
