Brief Answer:
That's a good idea

Detailed Answer:
Hi Karencochran,

What you describe could be oral herpes and that should be treated with antiviral medicine. If you cannot wait to see your general practitioner, you should go to the emergency department. Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have further questions.
