Firstly, the symptoms you told indicates some differential diagnosis
- Aphthous ulcer (most common).
- Trauma.
- Vitamin and micro-nutrients deficiency.
- Infection of the oral mucosa due to poor hygiene ( it may be bacterial / fungal).
- Some cystic changes that particularly found in oral mucosal surface.
- Some dermatological diseases which presents with blistering in the oral mucosa ( like pemphigus vulgaris, Lichen planus).
To come to a conclusive diagnosis clinical examination is very much important. Signs of inflammation, presence of pus, oral hygiene, all are to be checked. Any associated skin lesion is to be looked for.

You have to do the followings
1. First you have to maintain a good oral hygiene. For this, use a good mouthwash 3 to 4 times a day.
2. Take any nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug ( like paracetamol) if you feel any pain. You should take a pantoprazole group of drug before taking the previously mentioned drug.
3. Take a multivitamin Drug specially having Vitamin B12 and Vitamin C.
4. Consult with an ENT specialist for further clinical examination, investigation if required and management with specific medicine according to the findings.

Summary : Consult with an ENT specialist if you do not get any relief from the above mentioned measures.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know if you have any more questions.
