How long has this been going on? Any redness, white coating or blisters? Other medical conditions?

Two days ago it started. The roof of my mouth is red.

Well, this could be thrush--a candidal yeast infection. Without blisters it's not likely to be a herpes 1 infection. Burning mouth syndrome is another possibility, and that can be from no cause at all to a sign of vitamin deficiency. For now, you could try capsiacin cream or a local anaesthetic like Oragel, but I would suggest having a doctor look at this. The peroxide won't help this and I'd advise not using it again.
