Sore spots: You should see your DDS or your MD to have this evaluated. It sounds like a viral infection however your DDS or MD will be able to give you a definite diagnosis and ease any worries you may have.

Sore spots: Any area of pain, any white lesions, should be evaluated. Please see your Dentist or an Oral Surgeon for examination. It's practically impossible to make a diagnosis from "sore spots" and "white." Please, you need to be physically examined.
