Can canker sore and heroes be distinguished by a picture?

Can canker sore and heroes be distinguished by a picture?
I got diagnosed with heroes simplex by a Thai doctor, but after much research and starting to think it’s canker sores.. so the antiviral I’m taking would be pointless?
Only sore in the inside of my lips. No blistering just white/yellowish sore spots, extra painful.
And I took 4grams of Valtrex when my lip was just itchy and they still developed. Also my
First oral sore ever.

Hi for about a week I ve had a sore throat and then I noticed on my palatoglossal arch (the skin the covers the tonsil) has a white canker sore looking spot on it. This is what s been chasing my sore throat. It s only on that side and thankfully I can tell the pain has begun to go down but I ve never had anything like this before. I went to the doctor and they said it s a virus and just gargle salt water and take it easy but I ve never had something like this. I can provide pictures of possible but this is really annoying and I m just hoping it s not oral cancer. I m 24 years old, 6 0 and 215lbs. No history of oral cancer

I think I had a chancre sore when I was 8 years old. I remember that I had been molested back then. The sore popped up at least one more time. I don t remember everything because it was a long time ago. I am 45 now and I had been reading that syphilis can take years to show symptoms.
