I have little red spots on my gum just above my one front tooth. What's this sound like?

In brief: Virus

Small red spots could be a viral out break.
Should be short duration and gradually go away over a week to 10 days. One red spot high up toward the tip of the root could be a drainage site from an abscess.

In brief: Possible damaged too

Red spots above your tooth could indicate that there is a problem with the tooth.
You should see your dentist to have an x-ray taken to help with the diagnosis.
