sorry I haven't long to stay online tonight. Tired all the time.
I've become aware for a few weeks at least of, at first, a little sore just inside my bottom lip which I've kept fom drying out by constantly applying "Oralife" peppermind lip treatment to it (which is supposed to be medicated). It has now become three small such "lumps". Still mostly inside the mouth, but the larger now a fraction outside the mouth. Able finally to see it more clearly, they are not a blood blisters, but neither are are they sore (though they would be if they were broken) They look like white puss-filled blisters. If they are ulcers (which I've never had - unless they are the same as what I had early in the course of my first chemo. In that case, they lined only the outside of my bottom lip and were *very* painful. I had to apply lignocaine ointment regularly. They didn't prevent me from eating. And they don't this time either, but the look and feel of them is very different. They weren't puss-filled then.
So I don't know what these are, or how best to deal with them.
Any advice greatly receceive :)
