Palatal Petechiae: I could be caused by herpes. It also could possibly be a number of other things such as strep, mono, thrush, rubella, or trauma to name a few. Its best to see a physician or dentist for a thorough exam to diagnose it accurately.

Too long: Three weeks is usually longer than herpes sticks around unless you are immunocompromised. The pink bubbles can be tiny salivary glands that are plugged, petechiae(red dots) which are evident after trauma, screaming or smoking or may be how your soft tissue presents. If you get ulcers there it is worth getting checked. Or if they start to hurt please visit a pro!
