If it is a herpetic ulcer, then it will be associated with mild fever and most commonly situated near the lips.
An aphthous ulcer is due to mental stress. It mostly occurs over the tongue, oral mucosa region, and is very painful with a lot of saliva secretion. Aphthous is of two types - major and minor. Presently, you have got three minor aphthous ulcers.
