Okay so I always get canker sores. Like always. If I get one, I get another and another.

I've been tested plenty of times, so its not an STD or an STI. But I am confused and worried to why this is happening.

I haven't had any partners change. Ive been with the same person for 2 years so i really don't know.

What do I do? I don't have health insurance so that is why I haven't visited the dentist :(

Hi Anon_66871,

I am a little confused here because you include that you couldn't be getting these canker sores from a partner. Are you speaking about cold sores (fever blisters) or canker sores being the problem? Canker sores are not contagious, though cold sores are.

Here are both of the WebMD Overviews on Cold Sores and Canker Sores for you to look over. Maybe one of these will help to distinguish what you are experiencing and help you to find the cause of this repetitive condition.

If you are experiencing constant canker sores the article above does list some of the possible underlying reasons that this may be occuring. Please see your doctor if you feel that this is a serious problem and take care of yourself. I hope that you keep us posted on how you are doing. :)
Best Wishes! Amelia
