Hpv Mouth Sores
It is possible that I will develop mouth sores if I had oral sex with an infected person who has HPV or do I have a higher risk through anal sex?
If your partner is infected with the human papilloma virus (hpv), you could easily be infected. An hpv infection will produce a papilloma, a wart.
In the oral cavity, sometimes an hpv infection can become cancerous, usually seen at the base of the tongue, soft palate, tonsils or back of the throat.
So protect yourself. ...Read more
A canker sore is a painful, open sore in the mouth. Canker sores are white or yellow and surrounded by a bright red area. They are benign (not cancer). Canker sores can run in families. They may also be linked to problems with the body's immune (defense) system. The sores may occur after a mouth injury due to dental work, aggressive tooth cleaning, or biting the tongue or cheek. Canker sores can be triggered by emotional stress, dietary deficiencies (especially iron, folic acid, or vitamin B-12), menstrual periods, hormonal changes, food allergies, and similar situations. They occur most commonly with viral infections. In some cases, the cause can not be identified. Treatment is usually not necessary. In most cases, the canker sores ...Read more

I haven't been able to get a direct answer online. Can a woman get HPV/genital warts from a partner who has cold sores during oral sex?
Different virus: The cold sores are due to Herpes simplex virus (HSV) type 1 or 2, while the genital warts are caused by strains of the human papilloma virus (HPV). Oral sex with a cold sore may transfer that virus, but not the other. If the person in question also has or has had genital warts, they may be shedding that virus and pass it during genital to genital contact. ...Read more
Depends: That all really depends on the type of sore. Sores can occur for a variety of reasons, trauma, viral infection, autoimmune response, bacterial infection, chronic irritation, and so on.

They are autoimmune reactions and sometimes are severe enough to require meds. ...Read more

Tincture of time...: There's a saying about canker sores: they heal in 7 days if treated, and one week if you don't. The primary focus is pain management.

Frequent or particularly severe bouts of oral ulceration should be formally assessed by your dentist to rule out more serious conditions. ...Read more

Why hot water?: I've never heard the "hot" part, but gargling with salt water does draw excess fluid from inflamed tissues in the throat, making them hurt less. It also loosens thick mucus, which can remove irritants like allergens, bacteria and fungi from the throat.
