I've been noticing teeny blood blisters inside of my mouth/on body, however, this afternoon an enormous one has come up on the roof of my mouth which is really uncomfortable. Is this something I should mention at my forthcoming consultation?

Hi Aggie,

I have no idea of there is any connection but anything like that should be mentioned.

I get blood blisters on my lip. They're quite big and also quite painful, no idea why.

Hi there

Definitely mention anything that is going on at your next appointment, but I too am unsure if there is a connection with lupus.

Fortunately things in the mouth often heal up quite quickly (at least that's what I find) - fingers crossed it's the same for you.

cheers

Hi Aggie,

Yes definitely mention it to your consultant. When I showed mine what I thought were ' blood blisters', he said they were actually a type of cutaneous vasculitis.

Woke up this morning and the 'blister' hasn't popped as such, but it now looks more like a huge ulcer and it's painful to swallow....strange! Anyway, thanks for everyones advice. Have taken some photos and will show to Dr D'Cruz just to be sure.

Roof of mouth ulcers are very common in Lupus, I get them when I flare.

Yes, I'm going through a really bad flare of 'whatever I've got' at the moment because my period is due. It was bizarre because I was stood doing the dishes last night and felt the blister come up on the roof of my mouth within 30 seconds or so. I've had reddish brown spots on the inside on my cheeks/lips before but nothing like this. The lesions on my skin are also looking more florid and I've a huge open sore on my scalp. I also feel like I am coming down with a cold/have sore chest......deep joy. If what I've got IS nothing but psoriasis, I don't know what all this other c**p affecting me is! Surely it can't all be due to FM?

Just resurrecting an old thread here as i'm baffled by this particular symptom (well actually they all baffle me, but you know what I mean!)

I get these strange blood spots inside my mouth, mostly inside my cheeks - I have had them on othe parts of my body, but they're generally very small and quite spread out, i.e not all in one area. They don't hurt, and are under the skin, but me being me I have to 'burst' then, which then makes the area sore and it tends to ulcerate. I've had them on the roof of my mouth, and on the dangly thing at the back (uvula?) but providing I don't burst them, they seem to disappear as quickly as they appear. What's all that about?!

I mentioned ulcers - I get a fair few of these too, and not in places where you might expect an ulcer to occur (like when you accidentally bite a chunk out of the side of your cheek). I get long, thin looking ulcers in the creases between my gums and mouth, and also little ulcers on the skin covering my tonsils - those are really painful :( Ooh and sores on the sides of my tongue - I get so many of these! HOw and why do they appear, does anyone know?

The little blood blisters may be a form of cutaneous vasculitis, I get them, they are nothing to worry about but another important clue in your diagnostic process.

Mouth ulcers, nose ulcers, vaginal ulcers ughh. Who knows why we get them, but it's something the majority of us get, at least the mouth ones. A common place for them is the roof of the mouth but I do get them other places in my mouth too. Don't forget to tell your doc about these.
