The details you have provided is not enough to make a proper diagnosis. However just so you know, oral herpes usually occurs in clusters and ARE painful and usually accompanied with a fever. I would recommend you to get the ulcer/s examined clinically to rule it out.

you can go for Harpis blood test to verify wheather your really having harpis rather just predicting it..It might be just a simple ulcer which can be cure easily by local application of ulcer gels.

This might be the initial stages of opthas ulcers . These ulcers are common in most of the people.
their might be the reason of frequent oil change in food. food with vitamin B and folic acid will help u followed by an oral gel like mucopain R dologel. continue for 10 to 15 days and if the problem persists
it require biopsy. consult your dentist if the problem repeats for more than 15 days.
thank u
