In brief: Your unique biology

Every individual has different sensitivities and resistances to any disease.
Think of a classroom. During "cold" season some students catch many colds, some catch mild colds, some never seem to catch any colds.

In brief: That's you.

Mouth sores usually occur in people who already have the virus in their bodies.
They more times than not have a reason to appear. Lifestyle plays a big roll. Things like stress, tensions, pressures fatigue all contribute. If you are a calm person, get plenty of sleep and don't have a life, you may escape mouth sores. There are other reasons or types of sores that occur orally. Earl.
