Bubbles inside lip

Posted by: qna990  (8 years ago)
Hi,

Two years ago, I had a clogged salivary duct under my tongue. After a few days, it went away on its own. After a few months, this happened once more. The dentist suggested sucking on sour fruits to make myself salivate more. This worked for me.

Over the past few weeks, I began to have these small and clear bubbles on the inside of my lower lip. They feel like little bumps. These are very small compared to the clogged salivary ducts I had before and these are not painful. Any idea what are these? I have dry mouth and I am wondering if this is an effect of it. Please help. I would be grateful for your input.

I am not sure what was the main cause of clogged salivary duct under your tongue but there are also minor salivary glands in lips.
These all glands drain into your mouth through very small ducts. Any pathology or injury can cause blockage of these vessels which leads to accumulation of fluids within glands and/or ducts causing swelling. most common reason is people biting down on their lips accidentally causing injury to these little ducts and ultimately blockage of it leading to swelling. However, most of time trauma associated such swellings are focal (single) rather than multiples (can be possible though). Certain type of other systemic medical condition also causes such swelling. However, there can be lot of other reasons behind it so please don't jump into any conclusion.

I would advise you to visit your dentist and discuss your situation. He will be able to diagnose exact cause for these swelling.

Thanks!

Mucocele is a lesion formed when a salivary gland duct is severed (usually due to trauma) and the mucous salivary gland secretion spills into the adjacent connective tissue. Granulation tissue walls off the mucous secretion forming a cyst-like structure (not true cyst-because not lined by epithelium). When palpated/touches feels soft and fluctuant. Treatment is to remove mucocele. Also remove adjacent salivary glands. It is minor surgical treatment bone by the dentist. If you pop them they will come back again. But make sure it is indeed mucocele and not minor salivary gland stones or fibromas. I am attaching pictures with examples of what mucoceles look like. Hope this helps.
