Signs and Symptoms of STDs: Mouth Sores

Mouth sores, similar to cold sores or fever blisters, may signal a sexually transmitted disease. Mouth sores can occur around the lips, on the tongue, on the gums, or inside the mouth.

Oral Herpes Causes Mouth Sores

Oral herpes , caused by herpes simplex virus 1, can commonly cause mouth sores. Mouth sores can also be transferred genitally during oral sex. Fortunately, herpes medication can alleviate symptoms and reduce the frequency of outbreaks.

Private STD Testing Diagnoses Mouth Sores

If mouth sores or fever blisters are present, STD testing can determine the cause of symptoms. Private STD testing for oral herpes, genital herpes, and other STDs is available through at home STD testing or private lab testing. If positive, our on-staff physicians can prescribe medication for herpes.
