Yes, looks like canker sores (minor apthous ulcers). They are thought to be related to an altered immune response of no significance. They will go in 10-14 days without intervention. If they bother you and you want quick relief, get some "Kenalog in Orobase Oint." and apply a small amount 2x daily after meals. The oint (a corticosteroid) will relieve the pain and make them heal faster but doesn't prevent them recurring. The ulcers are not contagious or dangerous. Some people (my daughter) get them quite often, and most people seem to grow out of them.

Canker Shield is a lifesaver for canker sores.
Went to their website. Supposedly in "Pre-release" stage, yet they have testimonials and no links to any of their "...numerous studies". Nor could i find anything with a quick look via Google Scholar. The listed ingredients are underwhelming.
