Stomatitis, a non-specific term for an inflamed and sore mouth, can disrupt a person’s ability to eat, talk, or sleep. Stomatitis can occur anywhere within the mouth, including the inside of the cheeks, gums, tongue, lips, and palate.

Types of Stomatitis

The following are some common examples of stomatitis:

  • Canker sore or aphthous ulcer.
  • Cold sores , also known as “fever blisters”


Canker sore:

Many factors may contribute to their development, such as

Certain medications, trauma to the mouth, poor nutrition, stress, bacteria or viruses, lack of sleep, sudden weight loss, and certain foods such as potatoes, citrus fruits, coffee, chocolate, cheese, and nuts.

Canker sores may also be related to a temporarily reduced immune system because of a cold or flu, hormonal changes, mechanical irritation, or low levels of vitamin B12 or folate. Even biting the inside of the cheek or chewing a sharp piece of food can trigger a canker sore.

Canker sores may result from a genetic predisposition and are considered an autoimmune disease; they are not contagious.

Cold sores or fever blisters:

Fever blisters are contagious as they are caused by the herpes simplex virus type 1. The initial infection often occurs before adulthood and may be confused with a cold or the flu. Once the person is infected with the virus, it stays in the body, becoming dormant and reactivated by such conditions as stress, fever, trauma, hormonal changes (such as menstruation), and exposure to sunlight.


Canker Sores:

  • Sores can be painful
  • Usually last 5 to 10 days
  • Tend to recur
  • Generally not associated with fever

Cold sores or “fever blisters”:

  • Usually gone in 7 to 10 days
