Asked by jlynne78 (Female; 31; UNITED STATES ) on Thu 22, Jul 2010 05:37am

about 3 years ago i noticed that the roof of my mouth towards the back is covered in very tiny flesh colored bumps. they do not hurt or change in appearance, and i usually have to hold a bright light at a certain angle to see them. I don't know if they are normal and have always been there and i just never noticed them. Just wondering what they are and if i should be concerned?

Hi, These pinpoint bumps on the roof of mouth or hard palate could be due to smoker's palate or nicotine stomatitis. A condition where mionr salivary glands on the palate become inflammed and the orifice of these small glands become visible as red dots this occurs due to irritation by heat from smoking. These appear as very minute elevation as you .. an angle towards light and can not be wiped out. If you are not a smoker then it could be simple stomatitis due to multivitamin deficiencies. Check out with an oral medicine specialist or a dentist.

I have the same kind of bumps but mine showed up after having tonsillitis for the 4th time. They never went away.
