    This is possibly primary herpetic gingivostomatitis. Is this your first experience/outbreak? About 75% people has this virus. Usually it will subside within 7-10 days. You may consider having your doctor/dentist prescribe you some Acyclovir.

    Yes, it is my first experience with that. What should I do at home? Is propolis good for healing?

    It is best not to irritate it with any agents. No real home remedies, just keep it undisturbed. Have your dentist/doctor prescribe you some Acyclovir.
