For some months I have felt a tiny (3mm) blister form and disappear on the back of my throat. The blister is white in appearance, does not appear to contain pus or anything other than a watery liquid and is not painful, merely irritating. The strange thing is that, whether left alone or scratched off, the blister always seems to reappear within a week or two, in exactly the same size and location.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what this could be and what, if anything, I should do about it?
Okay - this is really weird. I'm getting the same thing, now.... every Friday for the past 4 or 5 weeks. The blister is on my soft palate, way towards the back, about an inch to the left of the uvula. It feels like I've got a piece of food stuck in my throat. I am as healthy as a horse, and don't smoke, and nothing has changed recently except that I am suffering from a slight case of iron-deficiency anemia. I've also noticed, for just about the same length of time, that I'm having leg cramps... mostly in my right foot and calf....
Are the rest of you still experiencing this phenomena, and are any of you suffering from anemia?
OMG!!! I am online searching the same thing. It started about 3 months ago. If I eat something scratchy like a bagel or hot in temp or spicy it seems to kick it up. Mine is always in the same spot, just to the left of my uvula. Mostly just 1 spot. I scratched it off last night, but it's back...very annoying.
Went to ENT and he looked at me like I was nuts. Not sure what we are all experiencing?? It's a mystery. Mine will go away for a day or two & I think, Oh it's gone, but then it appears.
fluid-filled, non-painful, small bumps in back of throat
I've been experiencing these symptoms for some 6 month's or so & cannot find any definitive explanation. It is possible that I could be anemic, and I have experienced leg & foot cramping as well. I've recently noticed that I am now getting the fluid-filled, non-painful, small blister-like bumps BILATERALLY in the back of my throat. It's the strangest thing. Please keep posting if anyone finds out more info. Thx!
this is all I can think of. back at the beginning of the Internet they got a lot of attention, bc everyone had them, EVERYONE thought they were the only person ever to get them, and nobody knew what they were. thanks, Internet!
Hello all, I finally couldn't stand it and went to my ENT. He couldn't see anything, but I had taken pictures...good ones with my iphone and showed him. Even though it wasn't there at that moment he blindly cut after numbing. Healing wasn't pretty (raw skin in the skin by the uvula), but thank goodness it didn't come back. They biopsied it and it came back as inflamed tissue.
My brother and I both had/have this...it is not..tonsillitis and is not strep throat...it does not occur on the tonsil it occurs on the soft palate...it reoccurs often. I will wash my hands and gently press it to break..and it does have some clear liquid...this is very odd...I wonder if it has something to do with food ingredients? Inflamed tissue? what is inflaming it? If the Dr. blindly cut he is not a very good Dr. I would want to hear more from folks on this...I am pretty sure we are not all delusional
I have the same symptoms. Otherwise healthy as well. Suspected food allergy at first, but am now closely monitoring all ingredients (I'm a very conscientious eater!) and the blister still re-appears. The doctor prescribed 5 days of antibiotics, during which the blister remained "flat" (but I could still feel a slight change in skin structure". Now 2 days without antibiotics, and the blister has filled with liquid again. It's really, really weird.

Hi, I have been having the same problem.
And I am No medical Expert, but I do know what worked for me.
I Gargled with White distilled vinegar and mouthwash. Within 24 hours the swelling and blisters subsided, I did this for two more days once a night and they completely went away.
I seem to be getting these same blisters quite frequently. I pop them and they come back. Only clear fluid comes out. They are very irritating. Has anyone gotten a definitive answer as to what these are or what causes them?
Recurrent blisters on back of throat, daughter and me both
My teenage daughter and I have the identical problem - it's been ongoing for years. Pictures taken of the back of our throats look identical. Covered with clear blisters that pop, and start again. Been to many doctors - no diagnosis.
Then I can across something regarding it being caused by reaction to mold. We had a water leak that went undetected behind a wall for several years. It's been removed and 'mitigated' but we're still having problems. Mold can continue to live in ductwork and other areas - I've torn apart the house and will likely end of moving.
Curious if anyone else with this problem has had water damage, leaks, or mold in their homes or work area. Unfortunately, most doctors are very ill-informed and not trained when it comes to mold related illnesses.
