Viruses That Leave a Mark in Your Mouth

Mouth sores, for instance can be caused by viral infections. They are characteristically red areas of swelling in the lining of the mouth.

The viruses herpes simplex and herpes zoster are often responsible for mouth sores. However, many other viruses can cause mouth sores.
