welcome to the chat
are you still there?
If so, please type hello so we can chat :-)
FYI, there is no way this is from an STD- they don't appear that quickly
they take at LEAST a few days to have symptoms :-)
This sounds like a mucocele
it is a benign cyst which appears on the lips and mucosa
it is from a plugged duct
it is on the inside of the lip, correct
Ok so what do I need to do to fix this?. Yes the inside.
sure, if you want, you can pop it
they usually just go away on their own
make sure you sterilise the needle first
then you can do the rinsing of your mouth
ok then salt wash?. how can I prevent a blocked duct from happening again?.
how many times have you had this before?
This is my first time.
yes (the salt wash)
They are pretty infrequent
there is nothing really to do to avoid them
you may get this once every few years, if even that
Ok thank how long do they on average take to go down?. Are the std if I did oral while it healed?.
if you pop it, goes down right away
otherwise a few days, maybe a week
what does this mean:
Are the std if I did oral while it healed?.
I am sorry , I am not sure what that last question means
Sorry is this a risk if I did oral sex
No, completely unrelated
ok thanks thats all needed to know.
will check in with you in a week to see how you are doing
BTW, I have popped mine before :-)
