i bit the inside of my cheek - left a bump on my cheek with white. now the outside looks a little swollen (only I notice it) - when i eat there is a slight tingle feeling. i started rinising with salt water & with oral gel mouth wash. any suggestions??
How are you? Treatment usually is not necessary for minor sores because they tend to clear on their own in a week or two. Aside from mouth rinses, over-the-counter and prescription pastes can help relieve pain and speed healing if applied to individual lesions as soon as they appear. Zinc lozenges, large doses of vitamin C and B complex, probiotics such as acidophilus, and lysine supplements may also help. But if it persists, it would be best to have this evaluated further for proper management.
