if i've had a few white bumps on my gums, but they aren't open, and i've had them for a while, do you think it might be herpes?

no I do not think that they are herpes. see your medical provider or your dentist for better answers.

Thank you, I will. How long do herpes outbreaks on gums usually last?

the initial one would last a week or two and then be healed and gone.

yes it would be painful and you'd have problems eating because of mouth pain.

Hi Grace,

now i have about two medium sized sores on the gums behind where my wisdom teeth should be. They are whitish/yellowish in color and are somewhat painful. The area around them (and they are about a cm or two apart) is also pretty red. How can I tell whether these are canker sores or cold sores?

Thanks, I really appreciate you answering all my questions.
