Unless oral lesions are actually shallow lesions with some pain, they are probably not herpes. ...Read more

Not much info: Well, if you mean on the inside of your mouth the most common thing that looks like this is an apthous ulcer.

Painless, white rough patch inside of cheek. Had it last week then it went away and now it's back in the same place. Can't be wiped off. What is it?

Secondly thrush type of candidal used infection can cause a white patch that when you scrape it off is right underneath. This usually requires topical oral antifungal rinse. If this persists see your doctor for further recommendations. ...Read more

See dermatology: Since ity is on your face, and still barely visible, I would see the skin specialist to be safe. It may something as simple as using a steroid cream for a few weeks, but be safe and see the Specialist who went to Medical school and training for 7-8 years, so you get the best care. Good luck. ...Read more
