Cold Sores VS Canker Sores

My youngest recently was crying that his mouth hurt when he ate. One night after brushing his teeth I looked in his mouth and he had a sore on the inside of his lower lip/gum area. I wasn't sure if it was a 'cold' sore or a 'canker' sore as I did not know the difference. I decided to go on line and find out. I found this article here explaining what they are. It seems as though he had got a canker sore.
