Dentist 's  Response
the red spot you mentioned is symptomatic or not ? are you having any fever? its not apthos ulcer because it dont involve keratinised surfaces. either it can be traumatic injury from some tooth or it can be gingivostomatitis if such spots are numerous on your gums and tongue along with fever. or it can be just proliferation of your papillae. you can use oroheal or mucopain , if its traumatic injury. if theirs fever along with numerous such spots, then take acyclovir 5 times a day along with lot of cold water. for better diagnosis, get yourself clinically examined.

wishing you speedy recovery
with best regards

welcome to healthcaremagic

it seems to be like aphthous ulcer
not a matter of concern, usually due to stress or vitamin deficiency
pl eat a lot of green leafy vegetables and try to be stressfree

if the sore/ulcer/spot increases then get yourself checked by an ENT surgeon or a dental surgeon

your symptoms tell that it can be a minor apthous ulcer which is proliferating at that site. but you should get checked by your dentist soon to rule out any abnormality.
