Dermatology
In brief: See your dentist
Most common cause for this is infected tooth.
Can also be related to sinus and lung infection. Not due to vegetarian diet.

Dentistry
In brief: Vegetarian
As a vegetarian you still need regular tooth brushing, regular flossing, and regular dental care.
Your diet can be higher in acids and this can erode tooth enamel. See a dentist.
