hello,
due to repeated biting of cheek thickening of mucosa occurs which generally is not a thing to worry. Start betadine gargles and try not to bite again on that part. Ask ur dentist to examine if there is a need for a tooth extraction or some sharp tooth cusp has to be smoothened... itching can be there cos of lodgement of microrganisms so maintain oral hygiene. U can also start warm saline gargles 3-4 times a day..
take care..

Hello Doctor, I ve been diagnosed with LPR which is acid reflux of the Larynx. Over time LPR can affect your teeths enamel due to high levels of acid. Along with LPR I developed dry mouth and a tongue coating which is normal with LPR. I noticed for a while that my inner cheeks are a little puffy. No pain or anything, it feels as if I m bitting the inside of my cheeks. My teeth are misaligned as well due to two inpacted wisdom teeth that arent removed as of yet. Could the misalignment be causing me to bite differently, which is causing the puffiness? Or is this from the dry mouth/ LPR? Thank you

Beginning two days ago, I had a sore throat. For the last two days, I have had itching and swelling of the inner cheeks, gums and lips during and after eating. I can feel striations on the inside of my cheeks, though I have not had any trauma to the area. My throat currently mildly sore. I m probably a little dehydrated (dark urine), though I m not especially thirsty. What might this be?
