Spot: Likely not. Probably some type of venous structure under skin, but diificult to say without a look. I would suggest seeing a dentist or your regular doctor to double check.

Leukoplakia: Leukoplakia usually isn't dangerous, but it can sometimes be serious. Although most leukoplakia patches are benign, a small percentage show early signs of cancer, and many cancers of the mouth occur next to areas of leukoplakia. For that reason, it's best to see your doctor if you have unusual, persistent changes in your mouth.

If it is not herpes, well maybe the doc you see will know what it is as they will have the advantage of seeing it.
