Question:

i have a pea size blood blister on the inside of my lower lip that has been there for over five weeks now. i will not shrink or go away. is there anything that I can do to help it heal?

Answer:

It should begin healing in 7-10 days. If it does not, go to your dentist and have it examined. There may be recurring trauma to the area that needs to be corrected.
