How can canker sores or mouth ulcers be caused by stress?

How can canker sores or mouth ulcers be caused by stress?

Stress & mouth sores: The reason stress can cause mouth sores is that stress can cause a decrease in your immune system. This in turn can cause different types of problems like apthous ulcers, or stress ulcers to arise in your mouth. Other lesions like herpes simplex, or canker sores on the lips also will arise because the virus causing the lesion is left unchecked by the decrease in the immune system.

Could it be that listerine is the cause of mouth ulcers?

Possible: First, there are many kinds of "mouth ulcers" and each one has different causes. It's best to consult with a dentist if you have one that does not go away or get them frequently.
