White-head like pimple on tongue, dental work done, blister formation, stings on touching. Suggestions?

Have had a witehead-like pimple on the right side of my tongue for almost 3 weeks ago. Exactly 3 weeks ago, I had some dental work in that place in my mouth. a couple days after that, I noticed a painful blister there, and started doing mouthwashes. It turned into this whitehead structure a week ago. It stings when it is touched, and is rather raised. Male, 59, 5 11 , 190.

Thanks for posting your query.

White bumps on your right side of the tongue that hurt are most likely caused due to constant irritation of the fungiform papillae.

Allow the soreness to run its course, and wait for natural healing. The only practical solution to quicken healing is avoiding irritation to the affected tongue area, or else pain symptom will worsen. Say no to hot drinks (tea, coffee), acidic food and sweet goodies. All these can aggravate painful tongue sores.

If it persists I suggest you to consult your dentist for thorough examination.

Hope I have answered your query.

Wishing you good health.

Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Anything persisting in the same area for more than two weeks need to be examined - very often an excision biopsy is necessary. It may not always be a simple thing. You should see ENT specialist or general surgeon. Earlier, the better.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
