In a way: Aphthous ulcers occur in the mouth by definition, but similar genital ulcers are possible. They should be examined and considered in connection with your overall medical history as there are several possible causes. Some include various infections, drug reactions or systemic inflammatory diseases such as Behcet Disease.
