Canker Sores, White Patches?


I have always gotten canker sores inside my mouth, since I was a little girl. Most of the time I have them for a couple of weeks, then they slowly start to dissappear. I currently have had one for about a week, a few days ago I started to also notice a few tiny white patches ( for lack of better discription ) inside my mouth too. They have now fadded, but i can see some redness where the white was. They don't seem to hurt or cause any discomfort, but I'm just not sure what they could  be. Could it be irritation from food scraping it?

I have been tested for hsv multiple times, and those have all come back negative. Should I get retested?  What do you think these are?

Thank you!

This picture isn't the best. Sorry!  You can see my canker sore better than the other tiny white patches. But those white patches are now a little red.

I get those canker sores, white patches if I have too much acidic foods or drinks.  Try avoiding them.
