Blister on upper gums
for about 2 months ive had a blister on my upper gum, first it was white now its red,it doesnt hurt except when i brush,nor does it bleed. what could this be?
When we use the term blister, it generally bursts out in a week or so, leaving the space red and erosive, and then it heals. If you have had it already for about 2 months, you may have something stuck there causing the swelling. You should see a dentist.
