Are pimples in the mouth normal?

Today my mouth started hurting & stinging. Much like it does after you bite your inside cheek/lip. So I checked it out and saw two little white dots. About as big as a crayola maker sized dot. Kind of white- possibly puss? I am a very unpromiscuous person, so i'm quite positive it wasn't passed during oral sex. It might be canker sores but I'm not sure. Can something like herpes be passed if you share a drink or things like chapstick?

Help!

Hello,
Without examination,confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but it sounds like canker sores. Cold sores(herpes) typically appear outside the mouth – usually, under the nose, around the lips, or under the chin while canker sores occur inside the mouth.

Pain from a canker sore generally lessens in a few days and the sores usually heal without treatment in about a week or two. Avoid spicy or acidic foods during this time.You can use topical ointments like numbing ointments, such as benzocaine (Oragel), anti-inflammatory (steroid) gels,benadryl allergy liquid mouthwash,oral preparations of steroids and vitamin supplements.

But if the sores last for more than 3 wks or start spreading then pls consult a dermatologist.
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Warm regards.
