For the past few weeks I have had this sore on the roof of my mouth that doesn't hurt except when touched, like with my tongue or eating. It feels really smooth and kinda like a bubble.

Could be a canker sore.. are you putting anything on it. I believe they are a virus if that's what it is...

No canker sores are NOT caused by a virus...

While canker sores do occur on the roof of the mouth they are more commonly ulcers rather than a smooth bubble. They also typically don't last more than a week or so.

If you have had the sore for several weeks you should get it checked out....

I get sore spots in the roof of my mouth at times and I believe it is related to the cold sores (herpes virus).

A "few weeks"?
Unlikely to be canker if its lasted that long unless you are immunocompromised.

Please get it checked. I had a co-worker lose a good part of his tongue to a tiny sore part. Might be a simple thing, might not be.

I used to get canker sores all of the time. Sometimes I'd have multiples at a time. Ouch.

I don't recall them every lasting weeks. Maybe a week or so, if I have a bad one or it's in a bad spot.

Honestly, if it's been more than two weeks, you should get it checked out.

(And no I don't have HSV either, as I have been tested. They are different from cold sores for people who do not know.)
