Does Deep Heat Cause White Bumps?
I have thrush on the lower lip. But, this is because the time to chew accidentally is often bitten. Yesterday afternoon, I felt a lump in the bottom of my tongue, and it turned out there was a lump that was white like rice. Its size is small and it hurts when I stick out my tongue. Is this just hot in? Please explain the following tips to treat it. Thank you.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The term hot in, actually does not exist in the medical world. In Indonesia, heartburn is commonly used to describe a group of symptoms such as discomfort in the throat, pain when swallowing, chapped lips and bad breath. In medical science, these symptoms can occur due to diseases that are separated from each other.
In your case, canker sores that you experience have nothing to do with these lumps because the obvious cause of canker sores is being bitten. These lumps can arise due to several possibilities, including:
Mucocele, a liquid-filled sac that is harmless and can disappear on its own over time
Infection or inflammation, can be caused by being bitten too or punctured by the sharp edges of food, such as thorns or chips
Tongue muscle injury
And it could also be for other reasons depending on the shape, number, size and other information such as smoking history, habits and so forth. Our advice, check your condition with a general practitioner or ENT doctor to be sure about the possibility, because by looking directly, misunderstanding can be avoided more. The handling you will receive later depends on the results of the inspection.
Meanwhile, no need to worry too much, just keep your mouth clean, avoid foods that are too hot and sharp beforehand. Increase consumption of vegetables and fruits such as oranges and mangoes, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
