Hi!
My gums have been feeling pretty “raw” today and easily irritated. I just took a look and noticed this irritation/red marks on the gums. I had my last full cleaning a few months ago.
Is it likely to resolve itself or should I try and see my dentist? Any tips?
Thanks!

It could be a primary outbreak (your first time). About 75 - 80% people have the virus but never express it. Ask your health care provider for prescription of Acyclovir or Valaciclovir.
