Canker sores are an inflammation of the mucous epithelium lining the oral cavity. With its help, our body provides an immune response to adverse factors. As a rule, stomatitis in the mouth in adults occurs for a combination of causes, and not under the influence of a single factor. The main pathogenic source is an infection of viral, bacterial, fungal origin.
The localization of this process can be different: stomatitis often appears on the inner surface of the lips, cheeks, sky. Sometimes there is stomatitis under the tongue. The causes of this phenomenon can be both the deterioration of the general state of the environment, and the widespread decrease in the body’s immune abilities.
