I have read that there may be
an association of canker sores with Helicobacter pylori,
the same bacteria that cause peptic ulcers
. It makes sense to me that reflux of acid could contribute to canker sores. I am prone to canker sores however I have been since I was in grade school and I did not have GERD then.
I am sure you will be hearing from others re this topic.
