Mouth Ulcer :A mouth ulcer  is an open sore in the mouth, or rarely a break in the mucus membrane or the epithelium on the lips or surrounding themouth. The types of mouth ulcer are diverse, with a multitude of associated causes including: physical abrasion, acidic fruit, infection, other medical conditions, medications, and cancerous and nonspecific processes.Once formed, the ulcer may be maintained by inflammation and/or secondary infection. Two common types are apthous("canker sores") and cold sores (fever plisters oral herpes). Cold sores around the lip are caused by viruses.

  4.     Loss of appetite
  5.     Malaise or lethargy
  6.     Pus or white patches covering the tonsils or throat

  10.    Infections in the mouth
  11.    Respiratory tract infections 
  12.    Systemic (bodywide) illnesses

  •    Canker sore:
                    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.
