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.

and would it be painful? because the bumps on my gums don't hurt at all.

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.
