I bite into an egg that i microwaved last night...it popped…

Customer Question
Hi! I bite...

Hi! I bite into an egg that i microwaved last night...it popped and burned my top gums and lip. I have some weird blistering on my lips and two small sores on my gum. What should i apply to them?

Doctor's Assistant: Are you experiencing any swelling? Do your gums bleed when you brush or floss?

My lips are swollen..it has gone down considerably from this morning. There looks like tiny blisters on the inside of them but they aren't puffy blisters if that makes sense. My gums did not bleed when I brushed this morning. I was going to wait to brush till i went to bed as I don't want to disturb the sores that i noticed today. My lips feel odd...kind of numb but with kind of a chapped feeling.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have celiac.

What you are experiencing is a normal response to a burn. The good thing is that the tissues of the mouth heal quickly. You can expect to see healing over the next six days and then you should be fine. Any of the topical pain ointments for the mouth like Orajel can be used to reduce the pain. The best thing to use is a prescription item called Kenalog in Orabase or Triamcinolone. Your dentist or doctor can call this in for you to the pharmacy.It will take away the pain in seconds and also help t heal more quickly.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
