Reply to "Bumps on roof of mouth"

Unfortunately I haven't lived in this area long and am not registered with a dentist. So doctor it will have to be.

Looking on the net they seem to be mucoceles. I read that applying alum might be beneficial, so I bought some and applied Saturday. Dabbed my thumb in the alum and held it to the mucocele or whatever it is. Did this every 3 hours holding my thumb in place for 10 mins at a time.

But, I'm not sure this might not have irritated the whole of the roof of my mouth. The roof of my mouth to the side of the cyst seemed to swell up a bit a couple of times, but then went down after 5 mins, but don't know if that had anything to do with the alum and can't remember if this occurred shortly after applying the alum.

But I'm just wondering if this alum might have somehow precipitated the 2nd cyst/mucocele or whatever it is?

I'll mention all this to the doc when I see him.
