painful,annoying bump or sore in left cheek

i woke up last week to me biting the inside of my left cheek. about 1 or 2 days after that,a bump or sore or something in my left cheek has appeared. it hurts whenever i eat,or spit. it is very annoying. is there anything i can do to get rid of this at home,or do i need a dentist? i don't have insurance and cant afford a dentist,so i really hope there is a way to cure this without making a trip to one.

Re: painful,annoying bump or sore in left cheek

If you bit the side of your mouth hard enough, you have a small cut in the mucous membrane. These usually go away completely in a few days. ALL mouth cuts like that get small infections in them because of the normal bacteria present and will make them hurt for a few days.

It should be gone by tomorrow or the next day. Try not to eat on that side of the mouth and rinse with warm salt water (1/4 tsp in 8oz water) a few times a day to help it heal faster.

GOOD LUCK, but it should be gone by the New Year. Have a Happy!

My best to you,
