due to repeated biting of cheek thickening of mucosa occurs which generally is not a thing to worry. Start betadine gargles and try not to bite again on that part. Ask ur dentist to examine if there is a need for a tooth extraction or some sharp tooth cusp has to be smoothened... itching can be there cos of lodgement of microrganisms so maintain oral hygiene. U can also start warm saline gargles 3-4 times a day..
take care..
