Brief Answer:
Probably canker sores!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about these bumps that you have reported. Canker sores in a majority of the cases are painful and with these being painless, it is less typical. What medications are you taking? These could be possible causes of this. However, medicine has described as many possible variants as possible but persons do not always exhibit all the described information.

In any case, treatment consist in using an antiseptic mouth wash solution to make sure that it stays clean, accelerate healing and prevents germs from getting into the blood stream. If you are in pains, then you can add some pain medications in order to feel comfortable.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thank you so much for using our services and do feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.

Hi and thanks for following up with me.

Having been a month, I understand your frustrations and need for immediate solution. unfortunately, this is not possible right away.

If you have tried the above measures and they didn't help before, I will suggest that you get evaluated by a stomatologist. He would be able to make things very clear after a comprehensive examination and maybe testing if need be.

I wish you well.

Hello I have a 15 yr old daughter that has two (I am assuming lymph nodes) knots behind her right ear located on her mastoid bone that are painful. These places come and go. The last time it was noticable was in July of this year. She as seen her doctor that was not concerned. This may sound crazy but we have noticed these places appear about a week before her period. She also has battled with canker sores in her mouth on and off for several years. She is very active and in good health otherwise. Do you think in anyway this could be related to her menstural cycle / hormones? We have also noticed when the knots appear it is when she has been under more stress than normal and also when she has the canker sores and some acne before starting her period.

I have a recurring blister like canker sore on my bottom lip, I am 31 years old and have gotten canker sores before not recurring in the same spot and not as often as this has been though. I get it, take L-lysine a few times (an amazing help for canker sores) a day and then it goes away only to return a few days to a week later. Should I be concerned?

Hello Doctors, I was recently put on Augmentin 875mg for 10 days for a sinus problem. However, I was reading that some side effects include loose or watery stool which I got the same day I started taking it (right after the second pill). My stool was very watery for the first 2-3 times and it became loose but still a bit watery. Also, I have noticed that I have had a significant breakout of canker sores on the roof of my mouth and inner lips. I have had one or two really big canker sores prior to starting Augmentin but as soon as I started Augmentin, the sores seemed to have gotten worse. I have about 9-10 and a few more that I can see that are coming along soon. I called my doctor to ask if i should stop taking Augmentin but she has not called me back yet and its been a few hours. Im wondering if I should stop the Augmentin now and if the canker sore breakout is related? Thank you for your time.
