I am posting this message in hope anyone that sustained a bad lip injury could answer some of my questions.
Six month ago, i had an accidental fall which resulted in me breaking my front teeth and biting the inner of my bottom lip. I consulted a dentist immediately. He fixed my teeth, stitched the wound inside. At that time, everything seemed good but unfortunately, one month after my injury, a hard lump started to developed along the incision line making my lip very asymmetrical and swollen.
As the situation was becoming very uncomfy, I went to see my GP. He told me it was scar tissue forming and adviced me to massage firmly the lump between the finger and thumb. I did that for a month or so and as i saw no results, i just stopped. It seemed even worse after massaging it then before.
My GP decided then to refer me to an oral surgeon. But with the pandemics, my appointment is not before september. Currently, I am still suffering from that uncomfy thigh hard lump inside the lip. I must admit it did soften a bit and got smaller but remains still present and annoying.
- is it normal to still have hard knots six months after ? I might worry myself more than necessary.
- I have heard that they can inject steroids inside the scar to reduce it. Did anyone tried that ? Knowing my scar is in my lip, i am a bit concerned about possible side-effects (atrophy).
- Did anyone have to get the scar tissue cut out ? And if so, did the revision was worth it ?
Thank you to anyone who would like to reply !
