Blue+Purple Hard Palat (Help please I am really nervous)

Posted , 3 users are following.

Just today the roof of my mouth began to hurt and I took a light to it and took a picture. What I found made me VERY nervous. It is a black and purpleish half of my hard palat.

That is a photo, I dont know how to get it to pop up or if links are allowed. I just really want any opinions I am nervous and cannot go to see my dentist yet.

The ONLY thing I could think of is that ive been smoking cigarettes lately (and by lately I mean ive bough 3 packs over the course of 2-3 weeks and I never buy cigarettes other than that. I never was a daily smoker until the last 3 weeks and not even then was it daily). I am immediately stopping as it is a bad habit anyway.

I am nervous as it looks like theres little small dots and little indentations in the middle of the bad looking side.

I am going to be seeing my dentist ASAP. Is this temporary? I am going to monitor it for a while and I have never felt pain there before.

One other note, when I breathe in I feel the air on the spot. It doesnt hurt but I can distinguish where it is by feeling it, like, cooloff when I breathe in air.

Please help sad

    You probably just ate something too hot without noticing it at the time and burnt yourself. But it's still not a bad idea to keep that appointment with your dentist.

    I have begun to relax as it seems the pain has gone away when eating.

    But is there concern for the little hole-looking spots on the middle bone running through my hard palat? It looks like little wholes on the white bone as seen in the picture in the OP.

    I am keeping my dentist appointment than you all
