I have like a sore in my mouth upper cheek its white I had no pain until I start messing with it. I prick it and it bled now today I wake up with paint when I eat on my right side it hurt. Wat is it.

Sore: Based on the description it is hard to tell what it is.

If you incidentally bit your lip or burned it, it may be due to injury but without having more history and physical exam, it's hard to make correct impression. ...Read more

It depends...: Is the diagnosis certain? Facial herpes can occur, but less common than oral (lips, etc), and it is unusual to have outbreaks in two area, i.e. both cheek and forehead. If he has it and you do not, best to avoid kissing and other direct contact, e.g. no oral sex on you. You could have a blood test. If already positive for HSV1 (as are half of all people), you're immune, can't catch it again. ...Read more
