hi.
tongue is made up of thick mucous membrane,so it has got more tendency to bleed.
after stopping blood from the wound there is formation of clot.while gargling clot is removed and bleeding restarts.
in your case this is the reason after gargling you get bleeding from the site.
you stop gargling for few days till your wound is healed.
if pain and swelling is there go for one course of antibiotic.
ok n bye

Sore spot on roof of mouth, could feel some loose skin with my tongue so must have scratched it somehow. Now my tongue is sore, has some red bumps. I had rinsed my mouth with peroxide for the scrape on roof of mouth. Is peroxide too caustic that it burned my tounge?

Hi. I have a big bump wart looking thing on my tongue that has been here for 2 months. If i apply peroxide or mouth wash everyday it gets smaller but gets big again if i miss afew days. I have kids so it s hard to do that alot during the day. I have looked up oral herpes and am terrified. The bump does not hurt or isn t sore or tender. It is red underneath a whitish top. The white top is more see through like plastic ontop of the red center. I have only kissed and slept with mybaby s father in a year but have drunk after my cousin. helpppp

Hi, I have (had) a red bump on my scrotum . It always was filled with white pus when I squeezed it. But every time I felt like I emptied it out, it came back. It felt like a knot on my scrotum that deflated when squeezed. I thought it was an ingrown hair . So I got in deep and pulled what I think was a hair out. I washed the hole with hydrogen peroxide and have kept pressure on it to keep it from bleeding . If it comes back again, what do you think it could be? 19 year old male. No pain in bump. Not sexually active.

While gargling with Listerine (recommended amount 4 tsp (2/3 fluid ounce)) I felt it was about to go down the wrong pipe and I immediately spit most of it out but I felt like I may have swallowed a bit of it. I don't believe any went down the wrong pipe since I was not coughing afterwards like one normally would when that happens? Should I be concerned? 44 Y/o 215lbs

I am a 24 yr old female. I have smoked in the past but didn't start until 21 and I never smoked on a regular basis. I have experienced tonsil stones in the past. I have a swollen tonsil with a white section at the bottom as well as redish-clear spots untie back of my throat behind the uvula. I went to the doctor a week ago and he tested me for step and I didn't have that but he prescribed me antibiotics because he said I had some type of infection but it was probably viral but to take the antibiotics just in case. I have gargled with salt water, listerine and a 50/50 water and hydrogen peroxide. The tonsil swelling has gone down but the white thing is not budging. I ambeginning to get hoarse and only have a day and a half left on my antibiotics. Could this be something serious that I need to worry about?
