Herpetic Infection: It could be an oral herpes infection which is the most common reason for "bumps on the roof of the mouth". This infection is characterized by the presence of sore little blisters that may coalesce into a painful large ulceration. This infection typically affects one side of the roof of the mouth only. It usually last for 10 to 14 days. There are some prescription antivirals that you can take.
