Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have pus filled sores in your mouth . Well there can be many reasons for sores in mouth like bacterial of fungal infection , canker sore , minor injury , , vitamin B 12 deficinecy and herpes simplex virus . But in your case it seems to me that the sores are probably due to viral infection . I would suggest you to maintain proper oral hygiene , do not pick them at all as it can lead to secondry infection , do warm saline rinses and also do betadine rinses . They will go away in few days by there own . If they persist then consult oral pathologist for proper examination . Doctor will examine physically to rule out above conditions . Doctor may prescribe anti viral drugs like acyclovir . Avoid hot and spicy food .

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.
Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
