In brief: Mouth pimples

Herpes will first appear with grouped vesicles on an erythematous base.
Clear pustules. These can also be painful. If it is herpes the treatment is symptomatic at first with ointment. In more severe cases acyclovir or other antivirals may be used. Take a b complex vitamin each day. Good luck and feel better.
