Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

The most common possibilities for your symptom are:
- a localized infection
- an inflamation in response to an inadvertent trauma to that area while swallowing, like from a sharp piece food material
- certain vitamin deficiencies, like vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) decifiency can often produce ulcers or redness or sorenes in the mouth

I would suggest the following remedial measures:

- Gargle your mouth three to four times a day with an antiseptic mouth wash, like Chlorhexidine (should be available over-the-counter) or with Betadine gargles.

- Take frequent hot fluids, as it can help relieve the inflamation and have a soothing effect also.

- Avoid dry or sharp foods, as it can cause more irritation to the affected area.

- You can also take a multivitamin supplement, preferably one with B-complex vitamins and Vitamin C, to promote better healing

If you follow these measures, your problem should most likely subside within a few days. However, if you the blister is becoming bigger or if you are developing more lesions, then you will have to see a doctor to have a proper evaluation.

Wish you all the best.

Hi, I'm 25 years old female and have been experiencing hair loss for over 8 years now. I also got my CBC test and thyroid test done but they are all fine - I don't have iron deficiency or thyroid problem, I don't understand the cause of this gradual hair loss. It started after I'd done extreme dieting at the age of 16, but it's been years since I've stopped dieting and eating healthy but still no improvement. I also take multivitamins as prescribed by a dermatologist. Neither does such condition run in my family.. Please help!
p.s I am 52 kg in weight and 5'5" in height.
