    - Very small skin-color dots in mouth wall lower area (parallel to lower teeth row). Upon moving tongue feel like rough skin.
    - Discomfort in cheeks but very less, feel like little stretch/itching in cheek. Often starts in second half of the day
    - Other mouth sores (red) appear and disappears themselves
    - No pain, No severe stretch, normal mouth opening
