Oral Herpes

Oral herpes is an infection caused by the herpes simplex virus. The virus causes painful sores on your lips, gums, tongue, roof of your mouth, and inside your cheeks. It also can cause symptoms such as fever and muscle aches. The herpes simplex virus affects only humans. Mouth sores most commonly occur in children aged 1-2 years, but they can affect people at any age and any time of the year. People contract herpes by touching infected saliva, mucous membranes, or skin. Because the virus is highly contagious, most people have been infected by at least 1 herpes subtype before adulthood. After the herpes virus infects you, it has a rather unique ability to proceed to 3 stages. Primary infection: The virus enters your skin or mucous membrane and reproduces. During this stage, oral sores and other symptoms, such as fever, may develop. The virus may not cause any sores and symptoms. You may not know that you have it. This is called asymptomatic infection. Asymptomatic infection occurs twice as often as the disease with symptoms. Latency: From the infected site, the virus moves to a mass of nervous tissue in your spine called the dorsal root ganglion. There the virus reproduces again and becomes inactive. Recurrence: When you encounter certain stresses, emotional or physical, the virus may reactivate and cause new sores and symptoms.

Oral candidiasis
Oral candidiasis (kan-di-DEYE-ah-sis), also known as thrush, occurs when fungi (yeast-like germs) affect the mouth, gums, or tongue. Normally, some types of fungi live inside the mouth and do not harm the body. In a healthy immune system, there is a balance of fungi and other organisms. The immune system is the part of your body that fights infection. When this healthy balance changes, the fungi may grow out of control and cause oral candidiasis.
