Dr. Hasan :

Customer:

near the back of my mouth

Dr. Hasan :

Is it painful?

Customer:

no i can't feel it

Dr. Hasan :

Do you have any other symp***** *****ke fever?

Dr. Hasan :

How big is the clot and what is its colour?

Customer:

no i feel fine

Customer:

its not that big and its dark red

Dr. Hasan :

Do you have any symp***** *****ke swollen lymph node in neck or blow jaw?

Customer:

what are they?

Dr. Hasan :

I mean can you feel any lump in your neck?

Customer:

no i don't think so

Dr. Hasan :

Are you worried about anything serious?

Customer:

ive had bulimia for a year, I'm wondering if its something to do with that

Dr. Hasan :

Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want.

Customer:

okay

Dr. Hasan :

The lesion which you have is a blood blister secondary to accidental cheek bite or it can be due to damaged mucosa of your mouth due to anything like hot or spicy food.

Dr. Hasan :

It can be a mucous retention cyst as well.

Dr. Hasan :

It has nothing to do with bulimia.

Dr. Hasan :

I would like to reassure you that it has nothing to do with anything serious as well.

Dr. Hasan :

You don't have other symptoms that I asked for and it is quite reassuring.

Customer:

I've been using this new whitening gel, could it be to do with that?

Dr. Hasan :

Just give it 7 to 10 days and it will go away

Dr. Hasan :

No it's not likely.

Dr. Hasan :

Gel would have caused multiple blisters.

Dr. Hasan :

So gel not related here.

Customer:

i got a blister on the side of my mouth and the pharmacist said it was to do with the gel

Customer:

but is that a different thing?

Dr. Hasan :

A pharmacist is not a trained person to diagnose mouth lesion.

Dr. Hasan :

At that time, it might have some relation to gel but as per your description, I really don't think that the current one has anything to do with the gel.

Dr. Hasan :

Since how long exactly you have been using that gel?

Customer:

thanks

Customer:

i feel better now

Customer:

okay

Dr. Hasan :

You are most welcome.
