Canker Sores

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 03 May 2022

Canker sores are small, rounded sores in your mouth. They are not the like fever blisters, which are brought on by herpes simplex. Canker sores aren't infectious. They may happen if you have a viral infection. They may also be set off by stress, food allergies, absence of vitamins and minerals, menstrual periods or hormone changes. The sores go away by themselves. Some ointments, lotions or rinses may help with the pain. Preventing hot, spicy food while you have a canker aching helps.
