Mouth sores are a breach in the continuity of normal mucosa with redness, pain and inflammation. It can occur anywhere in the oral cavity like on mucosa, palate, gingiva, tongue etc. They can be localised with one or two in number or can be present in whole oral cavity. They generally last for 10-15 days.
Symptoms associated are pain, difficulty in swallowing, speaking, burning sensation etc. They can be due to trauma, allergies, drug induced, bacterial/fungal/viral infections, nutritional deficiencies, manifestations of other systemic disorders like autoimmune disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, kidney disorders, sexually transmitted diseases. Any mouth sore that does not heal in 3 weeks must be investigated to rule out cancer.
