Reoccurring mouth papule
Over the past month I have had a reoccurring mouth papule.  It is very small and non-painful.  I usually have it for about 12 hours and then it goes away om its own; however, several days later it reappears in the same spot.  This process has been repeating itself for the past month.  Any ideas?

A papule can be like a pimple and may "pop" and drain.  When it recovers, the puss or fluid will return and build up until it again "pops".  If this is the case, then it is not "going away" and it's not getting better. You don't know what it is or what is draining down your throat. It needs to be assessed by your health care provider, or get a referral to see an ENT. If you are in the nursing program, have one of the nurses take a look at it, too.  Good luck

Is a tooth pushing on/near it when you lay down. This can
cause a slt papule to form & come/go. People w/ a bite problem
chew different & rub against inside tissue & this can show up.
Is it clear/red/purple? We've all bit our cheek while eating
& this can form a papule. Depends where in mouth but may have dentist take a look to ck.  This can also be a response to a
silver filling or a point from a tooth rubbing. If it's only
one & comes/goes, have a look-see!
