Equine herpes virus is definitely possible. I always thought it was herpes encehpalitis but it appears there are other forms, too, based on what I read at link below. Sores Inside Horse's Lip? (Pics Included) - Page 5

Do your horse's sores appear to be very painful to the touch?

Our horse is very prone to this. Our vet advises the same as you noted as well as use Ivermectin orally every two weeks until the would is healed over. I do gently clean the wound with saline first and that seems to also support healing. I wish the sores our horse gets would heal in 3-4 days, but they generally take a few weeks. They will start to look better in the shorter period.

FYI: This pix is a pretty blown up sore. They pop up pretty quickly, so the sooner you catch it the better.

Are there any more inside his mouth? Under his lips, inside the cheeks, or on his gums? If there are anymore, I would check your hay or grazing areas for foxtail. It has little stickers that get caught in their mouth and cause nasty ulcers. One of my horses had a little one on her lip that didn't seem like much, then her mouth was dripping blood, so I flipped her lip up and she had bigger ones inside her mouth.
