I have a brand new bump on my hard palate. Its red and little sore. Its not an ulcer though, and there's only one of them.

Anyone ever have anything similar?

I have lumps and red inflamed areas in different areas of my mouth. I'm currently being treated for crohn's of the mouth.
the medicine (mouth rinse) I've been given has 4 ingredients; tylenol, benedryl, decadron,(steroid) & antibiotic.
It maybe worth getting your mouth checked..Sometimes an abscess on a tooth can present itself with a painful hard
lump on the hard palate. Good luck

When I suffered with CD of the mouth I had terrible ulcers usually on the roof of my mouth, long, bizzare shaped ulcers that were deep and painful, but since taking probiotics daily I no longer have that issue...when I did suffer with it I always used orajel to numb the pain...I sure don't miss having them, thank goodness to the primadophilus reuteri.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

listen, i suffer from mouth sores constantly
they are called an Aphthous
i still have them, but to tell you the truth, the thing that helped reduce them was changing my tooth paste.
in many tooth pastes there is an active ingridient that helps make the foam
that trigers many sores
Sodium dodecyl sulfate.
colgate have them and so do other known brands, but some dont.
next time you go to the drug store, check out the brands and look to see if they dont have that ingridient.
i say give it a try, but stick to it, because it takes time.
iv been suffering from sores all my life, and i havent had one in weeks, and when i do, they're normaly much smaller than usuall.
hope it helps
the downside of changing it, is normaly the brands that dont have it arent so tastey and take some time getting used to, but believe me, if it works, its worth it

I believe the main thing that causes mouth ulcers is bacterial over-growth, something us IBDers are prone to and is why taking a good probiotic daily is beneficial and necessary.

I have suffered from mouth sores ever since I was a little kid....for a while they went away but then as the CD started presenting itself they came back with a vegenance...7 to 10 at a a time...big long deep ulcers.  I started taking 1000 mg tabs of Lysine and they went away.  Now when ever I feel one coming on I load up for a couple days in a row on the Lysine and they go away.  I have felt them in my throat or deeper in the past couple of years and the Lysine has helped with them as well.
