I am a 25 year old female. My weight is 130 lbs and height is 5 feet. My son is 5 years old. He has autism. He is a little overweight for age. I do not have herpes of the mouth (cold sores) and as far as I know neither should he. However, a week ago I bit the inside of my lip, and the wound turned into a larger canker sore. I also have one on my lower gum line towards the bottom of my teeth; though not as big as the one I made on my lower lip. They are painful and terrible, but I have no sores outside my mouth. They are white sores with red around them.
This morning, when I was brushing my son's teeth, I noticed there was almost circle like patches on his tongue. But, they were very faint. I took a flashlight to his mouth and noticed a large canker sore on his upper lip on the inside. It looks the same as my large one on my bottom lip. He has looked tired recently, and I am not sure if that coincides with the cold sores. A flyer from his school was also sent home the other day about a fellow student being sent home with pink eye, but I have not found anything on the internet to link the two yet. I have been doing non-stop research since before he left for school and all I can find is that these are not contagious and the causes are unknown.
Why do we both have them at the same time? He never really had any problems like this before. I did give him some Ibuprofen before he left. I am under immense stress in my personal life both self-inflicted (dieting and surgery coming up) and unintentional (many family and financial issues). So, I figured mine were from that. Any insight would be helpful. Thank you.
