I found a small black spot on the roof of my mouth - cannot distinguish whether it is concave or convex, if that is relevant. should I wait for a few days to see whether it goes away, or should I rush to a doctor? if I should, which specialist should I go to?
P.S.: I have been having frequent blisters (which go away, though rather slowly), and some white flaky material (not a white path, but white stringy material which can be wiped / gargled away), and frequent heat / niacyn sensitivity in the mouth for long, but I put it down to the acid reflux issue I have.
