Thanks for posting your query.
I assume this is the first time you have noticed an oral blood blister and you have no other associated symptoms or any bleeding disorder.
An oral ulcer is the most common cause of a blood blister in mouth. Oral herpes, unknowingly biting the cheek, nutritional deficiency and food allergies too can bring about mouth blisters.However any single blood blister which is self resolving within a week and not recurrent is more likely to be due to benign causes like ulcers or minor trauma to small blood vessels rather than infection ( herpes or other viral) or other significant causes .So in your case it doesn't seem much worrisome & is most likely to be a benign ulcer or trauma which should resolve on its own in a week.
Whatever may be the cause of blood blisters, the habit of smoking can aggravate the condition and prolong healing so it should be avoided.
If there are multiple blisters forming or recurrence of blisters then it would be advisable to get yourself examined by your doctor for confirmation of diagnosis .
Meanwhile please remember that piercing or popping the blister can bring an unbearable amount of pain and further aggravate the problem. Allow the blister to heal naturally to get rid of them at the earliest
Application of topical corticosteroids (fluocinonide gel) and antibiotic mouth washes are also extremely useful to relieve the inflammation associated with this painful condition of the mouth. Also, maintaining oral hygiene is equally important to keep mouth problems at bay.
Hope I have answered your query.
I'll be available for any follow up queries.
In case you have no further queries kindly accept my answer.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.

I was gardening in the morning with garden gloves, big sun hat & big white long sleeve high collar shirt under the strong sun, because I burn badly. That evening suddenly my lower arms between the elbow & wrist are covered with bunch of red spots. At first I thought they are from the bugs, so I put the over the counter insect bite cream. It didn t help at all after frequent application overnight. They Itch badly, tiny dot size to 1/4 diameter, some have white or clear pointed center. I remembered I had a similar incident about 3 months ago on my lower legs & went to the dermotologist. She prescribed fluocinonide cream usp 0.05%, so I have been appling it this morning, but no improvement. Should I give more time ? I also have proctozone-HC TM 2.5% ( hydrocortisone cream usp 2.5% ) prescribed from another doctor. Is this the same as the first cream ? May I use ths instead or use it after the first one is gone ? How often may I use per day & how long may I use ? Or do I have totally another problem ?

Over the past 2 months I had 5 episodes of unilateral flushing on my cheeks (4 times on my right cheek, one time on my left cheek). I have been using topical steroid fluocinonide on and off for 2 1/2 years (I d use this steroid cream maybe twice a month, once a day). Can this steroid cream cause the flushing? I ve also noticed that my skin got gradually more sensitive since using the cream and I often get hives/red bumps with whiteheads. Taking benadryl seems to help with hives but they often reappear.
