Short Answer: Cold Sore vs Canker Sore. What’s the Difference?

Cold sores erupt outside the mouth

On the lips, around the mouth, in the nose area, and for some, the face, hands, chest, arms, fingers.  Yep, they’re caused by herpes simplex I, a virus that more people than not have in their bodies whether or not they’ve had or ever will have an outbreak.  The virus is often transmitted in early childhood by receiving a kiss, or sharing eating utensils or a beverage with a person who has an active outbreak.

Canker sores only appear inside the mouth

The medical literature says it’s not a herpes simplex infection. I question that.  My own canker sore experience, and that of the tens of thousands of repeat customers who use Canker Sores Begone™ (containing herbs known for their anti-viral properties) find the triggers for a canker sore are the same as for a cold sore: fatigue, stress, illness, skin trauma around or in the mouth (ie dental procedure, permanent cosmetic enhancement, an abrasion).  The exceptions:  over-exposure to the sun can trigger a cold sore but not a canker sore.  The literature is probably correct about canker sores triggered by acidic food.  For instance, acidic food-caused cankers do not respond to Canker Sores Begone™. 

The Quick and Dirty

About Robin Barr

I was born in New Jersey, and when I was 3, my parents moved to Southern CA where I've lived since in Covina, San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, Laguna Niguel and now Mission Viejo. I love dogs and cats and compassionate about all living creatures. What do I do for a living? I invent problem solvers. Have you seen Cold Sores Begone™ or Canker Sores Begone™ in health food stores or online? Mine. I like using stuff that won’t kill me later so both remedies are non-toxic, safe enough for small children, and topical (I don't swallow pills easily). If you want to prevent a cold sore from materializing when you feel the early tingle symptom, apply a few drops of Cold Sores Begone™. Done. If you're plagued with those painful ulcerations inside the mouth (canker sores), apply a few drops of Canker Sores Begone™a few times a day, and it should disappear in 2-3 days. I was elated when PREVENTION and NATURAL HEALTH magazines told the world my two products work as promised. Afterall, I'm just an accidental entrepreneur. Read the circumstances of how I came to be a small business owner here, scrolling down to the paragraph header that starts with "If you're curious...". Everything above it is a repeat of this bio.
