Virus/ulcers: Without seeing it i can only guess. These symptoms can be created by viral infection (such as herpes simplex i) or can be aphthous ulcers which are ulcerations of unknown origin. If you get lip sores from stress or sun exposure, it most likely is herpes. I would suggest seeing a dentist while the symptoms are there for investigation and diagnosis.
