    Don't hesitate to go to the doctor. No sense in guessing.

    hi, well yes it could be but when you say bumps not sure what you mean? Are they like canker sores also...I mean look like that?? White in the middle like mouth ulcers

    I am a sufferer and I can understand your fears but I am on treatment and living a normal life. It's not easy...not easy to diagnose and not easy to treat but there are treatments out there. How have you tried to go about diagnosis?? You need those sores to be examined, swabbed and analysed. I know it may be embarrassing and difficult for you but that is how you need to proceed.

      Hi! Thanks for your response. Mine usually start off as bad itchiness and sometimes burning which then can turn into a bump of various sizes. I've never had one with a big white center, sometimes I get small white center which look kinda like pimples but are sore. Is it common to get itchiness and irritation and then various sizes with these ulcers? I couldn't find any detailed info on line also I'm very prone to cysts

    Have you read this leaflet on Behçet's disease?

    Do go & see your doctor & don't be embarrassed, you won't be the first patient they have seen & won't be their last!  Dr Google is very good at putting the fear of God into people!    Don't worry, good luck
