    Can I get herpes ulcers in my mouth? Not like a cold sore, but in my mouth like a mouth ulcer.

    Hi Doe,


    I am sure you have found an answer by now, and if you have a diagnosis and successful treatment plan, I would love to hear it.


    I am not a medical doctor, but I have had experience with Canker Cores which are not caused by the Herpes virus.  They are painful ulcers that usually occur during stressful times; however, ulcers in the mouth can indicate various problems from a reaction to medication to dental trouble to cancer.  They can also be caused by the Herpes virus. You should always check with your doctor.


    I do have a few sites that might interest you if you are still researching:

    Hope you are well!

    Thank you for your questions. This article provides some information about oral herpes simplex (Herpes labialis).


    It is best to contact your doctor if you think you may have been exposed to herpes or are concerned that you have oral ulcers.
