Thanks for the query.

There may be a couple of reasons behind this. Sometimes a vitamin c deficiency may cause similar symptoms.

Other cause could be candidial infection of the oral cavity. You should see a doctor and once confirmed its treatable.

Meanwhile, start vitamin c supplementation and you can try and antifungal tabs/mouth wash.

Hope I have answered your query.

Wish you good health
