Need more info.: How long have you had them? Do you have any other symptoms? Have you changed toothpaste or mouthwash lately or taking a new medicine or supplement? If any new products, stop. Otherwise get seen by your doc or a dentist.

See Dentist now: You may have primary herpetic gingivostomatitis, or trenchmouth. This can be very painful, destructive, and smelly. You usually will feel run down and often feverish. Happens frequently around exam time for students, or other greatly stressful times. See your dentist for evaluation. Hopefully something less, but go now an find out. You can be feeling better with treatment. Good Luck.
