Is a whitehead-like herpes sore always very painful? Don't want to start freaking out that every whitehead-like lesion is herpes... I see from photos that they also frequently occur around the mouth and not exactly on a mucosal border.

if you aren't sure what something is, it's best to be seen and get it looked at.

Could you please answer the question of whether it would be painful or not? If the answer is ambiguous - or that no one knows for sure, that is also helpful. THanks.

A cold sore typically does involve itching and pain. if you continue getting symptoms in the oral area that you've had previous to this, odds are they aren't herpes related. If you aren't sure, see your provider for help determining what the cause of them are.
