No: These are almost certainly aphthae. I trust your overall health is good and you have nothing to suggest lupus, neutropenia, or Behcet's; if you have other symptoms / signs, mention this to your physician.

No: I do advise an oral evaluation by your dentist and medication to alleviate these ulcers when they occur.
