It is possible to get low grade fever and mouth ulcers in viral infections.
But as you mentioned correctly it will be painful but not itchy.
So the possibility is that it is related to some allergy to what he ate or drank!
This may include cakes biscuits or anything because even small amount of flavouring agents,colouring agents,preservatives etc can cause allergy.
Some antihistamine like benadryl can be tried.

All the best
God bless
