I sometimes have canker sores; sometimes are mouth ulcers, and now oral herpes. I also think you may want to call your doc and talk to him about it.

I noticed a couple of you comment that you quite regularly have oral herpes breakouts. This is common with some manifestations of lupus -- it is so common for me that I take a daily dose of Valtrex to keep from having a breakout. I've done this for several years without any problems.

So, if you're having breakouts all the time, you might consider asking your dr about Valtrex. Mine was prescribed by my rheumy.
