Cold Sores

is reported by The Merck Manual Home Edition
"Mouth sores vary in appearance and size and can affect any part of the mouth, inside and outside. Some sores may be raised, usually filled with fluid (in which case they are called vesicles or bullae, depending on size), whereas others may be ulcers. An ulcer is a hole that forms in the lining of the mouth when the top layer of cells breaks down and the underlying tissue shows through. An ulcer appears white because of the dead cells and food debris inside the hole."
