How to Treat a Blood Pimple?

If you can’t get to your dentist immediately, there are a few remedies to try for your blood blister:

Cool It
Applying ice directly to the oral blister can significantly minimize the swelling. Put ice after the trauma inside your mouth to help prevent the formation of blood blisters.

In case it has already formed, heal the blood pimple by putting ice on the painful area. Hold it for 5-10 minutes and repeat as needed, 2-3 times every day. Moreover, minor pressure can minimize bleeding if there is any.

Cucumber slices
Cucumber helps in tissue healing and gets rid of oral lesions. Place a slice of cucumber multiple times daily on that blister till it heals.

Chamomile tea
Chamomile is enriched with soothing characteristics and can help soothe mouth blisters. It’s a treat and a treatment, 2 in 1. Enjoy a cup 1-2 times a day and watch your blister get better.

Witch hazel cream
Witch hazel cream helps reduce soreness and dries the blood blisters. All you have to do is soak a cotton swab in witch hazel and gently press it against the blood blister in your mouth. You must let the cream dry up.

Turmeric, with its anti-inflammatory properties, gets rid of pain and swelling and works well to soothe an oral blister. Do not apply the powder or plant directly. First, make a mix with paste like the consistency of honey and turmeric and then apply it to the painful area.

Are Blood Blisters And Mouth Sores the Same?

Mouth sores due to either fever, blood blisters, or canker sores all visually appear to be red. They may seem the same at first, but they are not. Few of the distinguishing factors are there.

A cold sore, also known as fever blisters, give intimation before popping up front. The alerts include tingling, itchy, or even burning sensations sometimes. After that, the site rises and forms a sore. Whereas a blood blister casually appears in the mouth without a call.

Canker sores are more like a red-colored bubble that has a thin white or yellow lining. On the contrary, mouth blood blisters visually appear dark blue or purple because of blood.
