Carol asks…Sore/pimple/swelling where my tooth is supposed to grow?
I have a bump or swelling on my gums where my 12 year molar is supposed to grow. It hurts when I swallow, brush my teeth on that side or brush my tongue against it. Is it just my tooth growing or something else?
Admin answers: It’s probably an abscess. You should see a dentist.
Steven asks…I have a bump on my tongue and I don’t know what it is?
I have this whelp that just appeared out of nowhere on my tongue and I don’t know what it is. It’s not like opened and it’s slightly sore. What could it be?

Mary asks…what is the bump on my cats tongue?
As I was giving my cat some medication, a very small pill, I noticed a bump on the very back of her tongue, right in the middle, I seen it as I dropped the pill way in the back. Any ideas what it could be, before I spend another fortune at the vet? Thanks
Admin answers: What kind of bumps? Do they look like pimples or larger? How long are they there? Is she able to eat? How are her teeth?

Thomas asks…What is this recurring skin and mouth problem when I was clean of STDs?
I recently got tested for every STD, herpes blood test, HIV, syphilis, gonorrhea etc. All were negative. However I have this problem that is strikingly similar to an STD problem. It occurs every 1 or 2 months and it’s the same exact symptoms each time with the same amount of healing time.
I usually get red bumps, very similar to acne or pimples near my lips, around my mouth (never happened until recently, real pimples are usually around my forehead or cheeks). They are hard to suppress using medicated creams (benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid). They don’t pop or discharge anything, however once I was able to squeeze out a clear yellow liquid.
The other symptom is these tiny white bumps on my tongue. Once thought to be swollen taste buds as said by my doctor, but now the bumps are appearing right under the tip of my tongue where taste buds usually aren’t and usually spread (1 to 4 bumps at a time). They are painful like canker sores but do not look like craters. I had a culture done on one of the red bumps a while ago and it came back negative for herpes. I was also negative for the herpes blood work. So what you’re saying is, I might have some type of herpes which isn’t HSV-1 or HSV-2 but it is causing these sores?
Daniel answers: Herpes test usually only tests positive if you have the symptoms during the test. So if you are out getting blood tests for it, it is a waste in my opinion. 90% of people over 21 in the USA will test positive for a form of herpes in their blood. They don’t tell you in your results because it isn’t the strand of HSV-1 or HSV-2. I worked in a blood lab during college, so believe me.
You should get a swab test done on those sores when they are there. Especially the ones outside of your mouth that have that liquid.
Susan asks…Can People get pimples on their tongues?
I was in the restroom and suddenly I felt something happening on my tongue. I looked at the mirror and there was a pimple- like thing on my tongue. I asked my mom and she said it was a pimple. Is this possible? I’ve tried to pop it a zillion times… Is there a cure for whatever this is?!?? Btw I don’t know if this has anything to do with it but while it appeared when I had a severe case of diarrhea.
Admin answers: Your answer is yes, they can get on your tongue.
Helen asks…Does anyone know what kind of pimples these are?
I’ve been getting them for the past several months continuously. Every time one clears up another comes up somewhere else. They are almost always on my chin, but I occasionally have them on my forehead and very rarely on other parts of my face. They start out as a red, swollen bump that looks like a bb is embedded under my skin and is very painful. After a couple of days, a white pimple will come up in the middle. When the pimple pops, a small amount of white pus comes out and there is a tiny white dot left deep in the skin. If I leave it alone it keeps forming pus over and over again. The only way I have found to get this core out is dip a needle in alcohol and literally pick it out. When I get the tip of it about the surface of the skin, I can grab it with the tweezers and pull it out. It is about 1/8 inch long and hard enough to be a formed shape but soft enough to squish easily. Gross, I know. But after the core is gone, it starts healing immediately. I have at least one of these on my face at all times. Unfortunately, I cannot afford to see a dermatologist for this. Please off any advice you can.
Daniel answers: I can’t remember why type of pimple that is, it’s on the tip of my tongue but i can’t remember.. Ugh! Anyways, yeah; those suck. I get them a lot… They are so painful! Just give them time till they form a white head. And try not to pop the whitehead once it forms!! That’ll leave scars… |: Trust me. Just use face wash, try Proactive.
