I get canker sores in my throat all the time. My Dentist thought they may be due to acid reflux. Last night I was talking to a friend that also gets sores in her throat and her doctor told her that they were herpes. Could that be true? She is really distressed and I SURE hope that her docotor is wrong. Can you get herpes there? I have never heard of canker sores being called herpes. I hope that isn't what I have. If anyone has some insight, please let me know.
