Brief Answer:
Chances are more of inflammation..

Detailed Answer:
Hi..
Welcome to HEALTHCARE MAGIC..

I have gone through your query and can understand your concerns..

As per your query tiny small bumps on the hard palate just behind front two teeth can be most commonly due to injury with some hard or hot food, allergic reaction to any medicine or food or simply Stomatitis caused by Vitamin deficiency..

As the location and appearance of the sores is concerned it does not look like cold sores which are clusters of fluid filled blisters and release clear fluid and occurs for maximum of two weeks or even less and resolve gradually within 2 weeks..

HIV will not become symptomatic within a few days after Oral sex and is also excluded as the cause..

So I would like to know a few questions to guide you better:

1.Is these any fluid discharge from sores?

2.Are the bumps painful?

3. They are present since how long?

4.Are you on any Medication?

Kindly answer the following for a better advice..

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards.

Brief Answer:
Seems mild irritation, nothing serious.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Dear.
Welcome Again..

Thanks for your reply..

As per your response, it does not looks like herpes infection and you need not to worry about it as it can be due to mild irritation caused by some hard or hot food and will gradually resolve as they are self limiting..
You can do warm saline gargle twice a day.
Avoid very hot, spicy and hard foods to prevent further irritation..
It will resolve in a week or even less..

Any further queries are welcome..

Wishing you a good health..

Brief Answer:
HIV/AIDS does not become symptomatic within couple of days.

Detailed Answer:
Hi..
Welcome Again..

As per your query HIV infection can take from months to years to become symptomatic and turn into AIDS and as it is just a couple of days back you have done oral sex, HIV does not seems to be causing the small bumps and you need not to worry about it as there seems nothing serious
You are perfectly fine as of now and many a times such small bumps come and go unnoticed in mouth as mouth is a place where small irritations keeps on happening daily and you need not worry about HIV as these bumps are not due to it..

Any further queries are welcome..

Some time ago I was diagnosed with Granuloma Annulare,prescribed some cream which did not help at all. I am getting more spots mainly on my right leg (ankle,knee and calf). They don t hurt, itch or anything like that. I am just concern that this is a symptom of some other underlying problem....white blood cells...Vitamin deficiency etc! Apart from that they are not a good look and worry that they are actually spreading. I read all that is written about the condition. Have you got any suggestion or test I should be having? Thank you.

Hi. Yesterday, my GP diagnosed me with celiac disease. My few symptoms seem to stem from vitamin deficiencies and anaemia through malabsorption i.e memory loss, numb tongue, pallor etc. Both my sister and father also have celiac disease, so I am no stranger to the hard-ships of a gluten-free diet. As a student, I have made an informed decision not to follow this treatment plan, with the knowledge that I would be increasing my risk of cancer, because I feel it would be impossible to fit around my lifestyle. I will be seeing my GP again next week for my follow-up appointment, and am planning to ask for a prescription for strong multivitamins, treatment for my anaemia, and digestive enzymes. In your opinion, how effective will this treatment plan be? Is my GP likely to agree to this? Thanks.

i am a thirty year old female recently i have been noticing a lot of hair loss, handfuls, especially when i shower, i startedd taking b vitamins over the counter and it hasn't really helped. my boyfriend started getting worried and he thinks it might be connected to some mood swings i've been having and thinks i have a vitamin deficiency. also he thinks i should mention that i've been having heartburn and yellow fatty stools and a history of pancreatic cancer in my family. i think he's overreacting but i've lost three members to cancer in the last five years so here i am... asking. what's up, Doc?
