Hey Folks... lookin for some advice, Maybe from some of our trumpeting doctors out there.
I woke up this morning with a smallish blood blister right in the center of my chops on the inside of my top lip... very close to where my teeth hit when I'm playin in the "up there" register for Marching Band lead. I don't really know where it came from honestly... I had an intense rehearsal on Wednesday evening but felt great yesterday morning, I don't remember "hurting myself" at all at rehearsal or pushing too hard etc. Maybe I bit it in my sleep or something? Who knows, and I guess it really doesn't matter...
My question is what (if anything) will help it go away the quickest? I have to play an intense lead gig on Sunday and while I don't THINK it will horribly get in the way I'd much rather it be gone! I'm hydrating as best I can because I know that's always a good thing to do, and I'm TRYING to leave it alone but my tongue keep wanting to mess with it... but any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance folks!!!
