I had a single small red/white bump on soft palate for a couple days and its gone. In HIV mouth sores, would there only be one or would it be more?

Call an oral surgeon: These types of conditions really need to be visualized, and together with a full medical history a diagnosis can be made. Your best bet is to call a local oral surgeon who can examine and advise you. Without this info, the cause of your lesions is only a guess, and that's not what you're looking for. ...Read more
