    Bump on bottom lip

    Hi I’ve had this bump for three days now & I’m not sure if it’s a pimple but I tried to pop it and some white pus was coming out but then the bump grew larger and made the side of my bottom lip look swollen. The bump now looks like this and is painful especially to touch. Help please thanks.

    Cold sore transmission

    Hi. I have been worrying a lot lately about spreading cold sores (my husband and I both get them) to my 2 year old son. I know the normal precautions to take while I have a cold sore, but I’ve been reading a lot of conflicting info lately saying that you can spread them by talking or breathing. Naturally, this seriously freaked me out! Does anyone know the actual truth, is it able to be transmitted just by breath?

    Unexplainable Mouth Pain

    I’ve been experiencing pain for about a month now in my upper right mouth area near the back. I went to the dentist and they couldn’t see any infection or cavities in that area so they thought my wisdom tooth could be causing the pain. Just to make sure it could be that i went to a different dentist to get a second opinion and once again they couldn’t find anything on my x rays so he thought it might be my wisdom tooth. So i ended up getting both wisdom teeth on my right side extracted and within....

    What is up with my tongue?

    It's been like this on & off for over a week. It has a yellowish-white fuzz on it with large red spots & some bumps, & a red tip. I don't have any other symptoms. When it first started I had a sore on the side that hurt, but it only lasted a few days. Why is it like this? Thanks I've been having gastrointestinal issues, am on an epilepsy med, & have some vitamin deficiencies. Not sure if any could be related. I apologize for the gross picture. Lol

    Pain in jaw and temple after gum surgery

    A part of my gums near the backmost part of my mouth were removed to allow a wisdom tooth to grow. It's been almost a week now, and ever since the surgery I have been experiencing a stabbing pain in the upper jaw and right temple, that worsens and throbs painfully whenever I swallow or move my mouth. Is this normal? I haven't been eating, it hurts too much.

    I have swollen lips that are inflammed inside mouth and is painful for me to eat. Only my lips nothing else inside my mouth. I have had this problem for eight mouths now.

Any suggestions..

    Frontal lobe headache and tingling teeth

    While sleeping last night, I was awakened by a headache in my frontal lobe (forehead area). With the headache, the top front row of my teeth started tingling - it felt like a shock to the teeth. The combination of headache and teeth tingling occurred about four times in succession, and then went away. During one wave of the headache, the area around my left eye hurt. I have been under tremendous work stress for more years than I care to remember. I've experienced the headaches on occasion, not....
