Burning in mouth, cancer sore on ovula!! please help

For 2 days my mouth and tongue have been burning..I have what looks like an ulcer on the right side of my inside cheek. It has a canker sore on it and it hurts and burns...I also noticed that on my ovula(you know the skin that hangs down between your tonsils that I have a small red area with a canker sore on it too. My throat feels really try and my whole mouth burns from time to time. I also notice a red area on the front of my tongue.

1- can you get a regular canker sore on your ovula? is it true that herpes only occurs outside of your mouth only?

Dr please help me I know what this this is and I am freaking out alot!!!

A month ago I had unprotected oral sex and made out with a female. She said she was clean. Days later I developed  2 rashes in the skin fold, where my leg meets my groin area. with burning all over my groin. It left after a week or soo...but my burning in my groin area comes and goes...can this be herpes or fungal infection?

Then weeks later is when i started to get the burning mouth and canker sores. Keep in mind I do get canker sores alot does this mean anything?

anything you can provide would be greatly appreciated

I suspect your current problems are not due to herpes.  If you were going to get herpes, it would be expected to occur within 10 days of exposure, thus to attribute your current problem to an exposure a month ago is unlikely.  In addition, as you mention, it is unusual for oral herpes to occur only in the mouth and throat and not outside, on the lips or around the mouth.  Finally, you can get canker sores on the uvula.  I think you have a recurrence of your canker sores and a sore throat, not herpes.

The rash in the skin fold near your leg does not sound in any way like herpes either.  Hope these comments help.  Take care.  EWH

Canker sores and herpes can look similar.  The reason it is unlikely to be herpes is the other reason I gave you.  

Your pimple is not related, nor is the rash in your groin.

Calm down, your anxiety is on display here.  EWH

The only lesion i got outside my mouth is a large pimple where my facial skin meets my upper lip and its taking a long time to leave..it had alot of white pius in it for a while..and now the pimple got smaller and now its still here like 3 weeks later...can this be related?

so getting an ulcer with a canker sore and getting what looks like a canker sore on my ovula then i could rule out herpes?ever though my whole mouth is burning right now? and has been for 2days>? and i have a red spot on my tongue?

what do herpes inside the mouth look like?

The burning and rash on my groin happened 2 days after i had unprotected oral sex and it lasted for a couple of weeks, and on and off i continue to get burning down there.
