Question: I have been getting blisters on my gums. That are not cold sores. They are very similar to a blistering you might get on your finger after you get burnt. They have some fluid in them and if you press On them they pop and then there’s just a little sore and then a few hours they’re gone There is usually only one in my mouth at a time and they can pop up anywhere on my gums

Brief Answer:
Can be due to gum infection.

Detailed Answer:


Thanks for the query.

As per your explanation the blister that is formed randomly over the gums can be due to gum infection.

You can start massaging your gums gently with Chlorohexidine or Metronidazole containing oral gel.

Do warm saline gargles.

Once get a thorough teeth cleaning or scaling done by a Dentist.

Let me know how it improves.

Hope this helps.
