Stomatitis is a sore or swelling of the mouth. The wound may be on the cheeks, gums, lips or tongue. The two main forms of stomatitis are herpetic stomatitis, also known as cold sores, and canker sores, also known as cancer. Infection with Herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) causes herpetic stomatitis. It is more common in young children from 6 months to 5 years old. People exposed to HSV-1 may develop oral ulcers later in life because of the virus. HSV-1 is linked to HSV-2, the virus that causes genital herpes, but it's not the same virus. This infection occurs due to the attack of herpes simplex type 1 virus.
