I wondered whether it is connected to the virus i had, and why its taking so long to heal

Thank you for that additional information.

These can be related to the stress of your recent viral infection.

Unfortunately they can sometimes take 8 to 10 weeks to go away.

Chlorhexidine gluconate mouthwashes (rinse and spit) can help at times but in most cases they just go away with time.

That is probably why your dentist was not too excited about them...

Does this make sense to you?
