Stupid question but, can a canker sore in your mouth....

....spread anywhere else if you give & get oral sex?? Or is it different thing than what is passed sexually? I think it's the different one but does anyone know for sure??

  • They are not contagious......however if you kiss (or have oral) while you have one you can infect it but the other person can not get it from you.

  • Canker sores are not herpes if that is what you are asking. Nothing can get passed through oral sex with a canker sore.

  • They are not contagious. It is only a sore in your mouth from a cut like something you ate had a sharp edge, chips for instance can do that. You will not pass a canker sore on to anyone else.

  • Incidentally - to speed up the healing of a canker sore - rinse your mouth with a mixture of 50% water and 50% peroxide. Works every time.
