Question: reoccuring tongue bubble

 ogr - Wed Feb 09, 2005 11:50 pm

There's a pale/transparent, bubble-like thing under my tongue that keeps returning after i pop it. What is it and how can I get rid of it for good?

User avatar Various types of sores can appear anywhere within the mouth, including tongue. Mouth sores are most often mechanical irritations, cold sores (also called fever blisters), or canker sores. Cold sores are caused by herpes simplex virus and are very contagious. Usually, you have tenderness, tingling, or burning before the actual lesion appears.
If this is a recurring condition that you do not think is related to mechanical irritation then you should consult your physician. There could be an underlying decreased immunity.
