White lumps on upper gums inside lips

Posted , 3 users are following.

Above the tooth line near my canine teeth i noticed today some raised areas while licking my tongue around my mouth.

Upon looking in a mirror i saw there were a few heavy white coated lumps/blisters there, when i wiped hard the White came off and left a redness with some blood spots.

This area isnt sore and is not causing any discomfort. Could this be herpes or a candida/thrush infection.

I have tried taking a photo but its in a difficult place.

Should i see my GP or dentist.
