Post Blood Blister inside cheek

My hubby was on the computer and noticed a blood blister (at least, I think that's what it was) on the inside of his cheek. It was the size of an eraser at the end of a pencil almost. Has anyone ever seen a blood blister that big? What do you do for it? He said that he doesn't remember biting it or anything. He has has some sinus pain on the same side every so often. Does this sound like an infection or a simple blood blister? I don't know, because I have never seen them that big, but, it is red and he said that it doesn't hurt, but, his sinuses are kind of "burning" around his cheek on that side.

If it is a blood blister it will look like a regular blister but be filled with blood. Since it isn't inflammed I doubt it is an infection. You do mention sinus problems and I doubt they are related to the blood blister if that is what it is but if the sinuses don't clear up in few days he may want to see the doc to get them checked before a sinus infection starts to brew.
