    I prefer vodka to wisky, so I'll defer on that. :)

    Soft palette lesions tend to be aphthous ulcers, which are non-infectious painful ulcerations. However, your description of a blister, bloody, and bursting is definitely atypical. Allergic reaction and mechanical trauma are definitely on the list of possibilities. But depending on your age and risk factors, it could be any number of things (good and bad). I'm glad you're going to see a physician about it.

    Never personally had this health issue ... and meds for many others have contraindicated continued usage of any alcoholic sublime:-(.

    Thanks for all the support.
    Back the the real issue in hand - whisky is Scottish and Whiskey is Irish.

    The minor issue at hand, I've got some cream from the docs. She said I'm just the type to be succeptible to such lesions, unluckily though, and it has nothing to do with the trumpet.
    BUT, it's got me thinking, how many germs must be living in my trumpet. Next time I'll rinse it out with a cheap bottle of Japanese Nikka whisky.

    Now back to the main point in hand - I prefer port or sherry.

    Whisky, whiskey, vodka...whichever. If you do all three you will sound like Wynton...in your head. Anyway...I have had a problem sorta like this...minus the blood. I occasionally get multiple bumps...almost rashlike...on the roof of my mouth. If always starts as a small spot then grows to cover the entire roof. After a few days it shrinks up again and I don't know when or if it will return. Maybe I should hit the Whiskey:)

    Hi GB in Japan,

    I had a similar situation about 7-8 years ago. It started with a big blood blister above my uvula. Months later, I started developing them in other parts of my mouth. 14 doctors later a biopsy was taken by a leading dermatologist here in the Philippines. I was diagnosed with Pemphigus Vulgaris, which is an autoimmune disease. This was verified by some (blood) immuno-fluorescence tests. Basically, I am allergic to my own skin. Fortunately, it is fairly isolated to my mucosa.

    Heavy doses of steroids fixes the flare-ups.

    Hope this helps.

    And to keep on topic, I like Laphroaig single malt scotch.
