Which diseases or disorders can cause a person to sustain injuries within their mouth?

1. Infectious mononucleosis, more commonly referred to as "kissing disease," is one of the conditions that can cause wounds to appear on or inside the mouth. Weakness and an enlargement of the lymph nodes are two additional disturbing signs and symptoms.

2. Oral thrush, also referred to as candidiasis, is a condition that occurs as a result of an excessive growth of yeast in the mouth. Oral thrush is not typically considered to be a stand-alone condition but rather a symptom of a more serious underlying condition.

3. The mouth wounds may also have been caused by anemia or a lack of folate in the patient's body. Mouth wounds are one of the unsettling symptoms that can arise when there is a deficiency in the vitamin folate that the body needs to function properly. Folate deficiency can also cause the body to stop producing enough of the vitamin.

4. Herpes simplex virus–driven cold sores. If you discover that you have cold sores, you should visit a doctor as soon as possible in order to stop the disease from spreading to other people. If you have herpes, you may have painful mouth sores that are also very contagious.
