What’s up people. Today is going to be a very straightforward post because well…the question is very straightforward. What’s the difference between cold sores and canker sores? Hmm. Seems very straightforward to me, and when you are looking for a natural way to get rid of cold sores you want to make sure that you DO have a cold sore and not a canker sore. So let’s get into it shall we?

First of all, a canker sore will form INSIDE of the mouth or on the tongue. They are not caused by the herpes simplex virus and will typically heal within a week or two. The main problem with canker sores is that they hurt like a m…(You get the idea! lol!) So while you have one, make sure that you stay away from foods that will make the situation worse. You know, acidic foods like orange juice, any type of spicy foods, and gum. Why chewing gum? Sometimes chewing gum can irritate an already irritated mouth.

Cold Sores on the other hand, usually form on the OUTSIDE of the mouth, usually on the lip. They ARE caused by the herpes simplex virus, and do not heal as fast.  Cold Sores unlike canker sores, are highly contagious. As a matter of fact, they are the most common form of herpes! Meaning your health teacher should have been warning you about cold sores and oral herpes instead of the more dreaded and popular genital herpes.
