You can find the canker sore inside your mouth and usually located at the front part of the mouth. The occurrence of this in your mouth can be very painful and cause complications in eating and talking. The canker sore is typical of two variations, which are the simple and complex versions.

The simple cancer sore usually occurs among teenagers and can show up in your mouth about four times in a year. The complex canker sore usually causes a long time pain, and it seldom occurs among people. On the other hand, the cold sore is usually found towards the end of the lip at the outer part of your mouth.

The cold sore can evolve on several stages of healing and even the development in or on your mouth. One thing that is usually referred to the as cold sore is fever blisters, which commonly starts as one or more red bumps.
