Can only guess...: ...without an image. Understanding your underlying medical problems, exposures, risks would be helpful as well. Would ask that you allow a physician to examine your "spots" (whether in the office or via telemedicine), and go from there. Also, I see you have a history of shingles, which can recur. ...Read more

How little is little: Hi Katherine328. Could be a virus, or a canker sore (apthous ulcer), depending on size.

Your own practitioner can probably refer you. ...Read more
