Do you ever get mouth ulcers or canker sores? They are quite literally a pain! These painful oral lesions often form in your cheeks or in the soft tissue of your mouth and can last at least a week and oftentimes longer. They can make it hard to eat due to sensitivity and many people even report it hurting when they move their mouth to eat, talk, or smile.
Mouth ulcers, also known as canker sores or aphthous ulcers, are small lesions in the mouth and around the gum tissue that can cause pain when talking, smiling, eating, or drinking. Canker sores are not the same as cold sores which are caused by the herpes simplex virus, canker sores do not occur on the outside surface of your lips and they are not contagious.
