I think you mean Canker Sores. Or they could be Ulcers. Or a popped taste bud, which will slowly die and disappear. Canker sores are little white dots that spread on your tongue of you have maybe just recovered from flu or cold, or if your have been eating hot or spicy foods. They are very painfull, i have one at the moment. A simple remedy to get rud of ulcers, popped taste buds and Canker sores is to make warm water ( not too hot! We don't want you to burn yourself ) and put some salt into a glass with the warm water, mix it around a bit, and then wash it around your mouth. DO NOT DRINK IT. Nothing will happen to you if you drink it, it just will be really yucky :( The white spot may pop, and it may hurt a little, but man, it's no where as painfull as waiting for it to go away. I don't want to scare you, but you could have mouth cancer. GET A DOCTOR TO TELL YOU ABOUT IT, HE KNOWS MORE THAN I DO. Hope i could help, bye now.

If you touch the sores or fluids from the sores and then the baby's skin, yes you can. Fluids found in a herpes sore carry the virus, and contact with those fluids can cause infection.

What are those white things in your mouth that hurt?

There are many possibilities, but it is hard to say what those could be since you do not provide much information. However, it is possible that what you are refeering to is a canker sore. A canker sore ressembles a white crater and is sometimes surrounded by a red ring. Canker sores can appear on the inside of the lips and cheeks, on gums and on your tongue. They can be quite painful and can last up to a few weeks. There is no real treatment for them, however, different products can be bought to speed the healing up or to dull the pain. For such products, consult your pharmacist. Nonetheless, you should consult a doctor or a nurse to have a clear diagnostic.
