Possible mononucleos: You need to see a doctor or dentist to get a proper diagnosis but the symptoms you describe could be mono or strep throat or primary herpes type one infection. It may also be a simple cold virus. Usually bacterial infections result in a fever.
Dr. Michael Farr
Specializes in Dentistry
A blood test is necessary to determine if it is mono.

Oral herpes: It sounds like you have an outbreak of cold sores - herpes simplex type 1. Outbreaks occur in times of stress, like when you have the flu.
Dr. John Francis
Periodontics 30 years experience
Virus: Could be a secondary hermetic outbreak. Most people had the chicken pox as a child and have the herpes virus lying dormant in their system. A herpes outbreak in the mouth can look like little spots with a red ring around them. Give it a week to ten days and it may be gone.
