  • Treat it like a cold sore and keep the area clean and go see your Dr.

  • I have googled it, and doctors won't remove them sinve they are oral so doc would tell me to see a dentist, I just don't have the 75 for the consultation and the 200 to get it removed.

  • my son had one called a mucocele. we had to have it removed surgically. they doc said theres a chance that it will come back since those who get them tend to have them come back but so far we havent had another. it was a very easy procedure it took about 15 mins and he went home a few hours later
