A mucous cyst is a fluid-filled swelling that occurs in the mouth, tongue, or lips.
It is also known as a mucocele. Mucocele causes pain and uncomfortable feeling in your mouth, so you want to get rid of it as soon as possible. It develops when the mouth’s salivary glands get plugged with mucus. Poor oral hygiene can also cause the development of this cyst.
Stop biting your lips and take care of your oral health to prevent the occurrence of mucocele.
You can treat this type of cyst naturally. Turmeric, salt, honey, ice, Aloe vera, and a frozen tea bag are one of the most effective natural remedies.
