    Blister under tongue
    dudeguy1 posted:
    Hello. Every now and then I get fluid filled blister under my tongue. They can get kinda painful, but nothing too crazy or anything. I get similar ones in my bottom inner lip a lot more often though. I am hsv-1 positive. Can these blisters be caused by it by the virus? Is it an outbreak?
    steffanymohan responded:
    Canker sores are inflamed blisters which appear within the mouth area, sometimes inside the cheeks, in your lip area, under your tongue, or on your gums. Medical professionals are not certain just what causes canker blisters, although tension, your allergies, unhealthy nutrition may be the cause.

    dudeguy1 replied to steffanymohan's response:
    The pain is actually pretty rare. Unles i rub it against my teeth, it doesn't really hurt. The ones in my inner lower lip never really hurt unless I pop them and rub my tongue on them. Even them the pain is like a 1 out of 10. so not a big deal at all. is that indicative of canker sores? Ever since I found out I have hsv-1, I have been afraid of everything that comes out in my mouth, especially these blisters. Should I be this worried? I'm terrified of my own spit now!

    I get a blister like that too. It started 10 years ago and it would aslalso show up with coldsore so i asked a dr. NB e said the blister was nothing, b Vi t gave me an oral medication for the coldsores. Now one will show up and keep showing up after i pop it . If i swobe it with alcahole it will go away, if i use the medication it will go away longer. So i think it could be a virus, if its always the same spot and it only goes away with a blocker. So far my girlfriend has no got it so maybe its no a virus.
