Why is it aphthous ulcers if there are no GI symptoms? Why can’t it be herpes zoster?
colonelred_It’s just canker sores, they come and go. I think in herpes the gingivostomatitis really only happens when you first get infected. After that you just get recurrent cold sores.+32019-05-21T09:44:57Z
hyoidHerpes zoster is not the same as herpes simplex virus. +162019-05-30T23:37:45Z

kateinwonderlandcf) Just in case someone wanted to know the causative organism of aphthous ulcers
:The precise cause of canker sores remains unclear, though researchers suspect that a combination of factors contributes to outbreaks, even in the same person.
Unlike cold sores, canker sores are not associated with herpes virus infections.+52019-06-22T04:01:26Z
charcot_bouchardHerpes Zoster doesnt cause gingivostomatitis. Herpengina can cause vesicular lesion in mouth but happens to children in summer season by entero virus+2019-06-26T11:56:58Z
drdeeznuts1I'm wondering if this could be a mild case of Behcet syndrome without genital involvement+2019-07-11T02:10:57Z
sherryIt sure can be Behcet or Pemphigus if the q provides us with more info. Canker sores just come and go for years with unclear mechanism. Also herpes zoster is shingles by VZV, not HSV1.+2019-07-11T11:34:20Z
