Brief Answer: Apthous Ulcers is likely diagnosis Detailed Answer: Welcome Again. Pictures are not clear , what i can appreciate is that these are Apthous Ulcers. They can occur due to dietary deficiency of nutrients. Let me know in case you have any photosensitivity , ulcer on genitalia or any history of unprotected sexual behaviour. I advice for apthous ulcers following : 1. Tab Zincovit once a day for 15 days. 2. Triamcinolone ointment available with trade name Kenacort 0.1% Oral Paste thrice a day locally after food for 7 days. 3. Betadine Gargles twice a day. 4. If pain in eating is there , i advice apply Dologel / Mucopain gel 5 minutes before meals. I hope this helps. Still if your problem persists after 15 days. Write to me again. If you don't have any further query , you may close the discussion and rate it!

Brief Answer: Detail Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Friend. I can not see the images very clearly. But when ever , a patient of mouth ulcers comes to us , we initially treat like this , as apthous ulcers are mostly due to dietary inadequacy. If in case you have any dental problems causing traumatic apthous ulcers, you need to visit a dentist. If ulcers are associated with other problems like genital ulcers , photo sensitivity , rashes , joint pains , we think for other causes like Autoimmune diseases , SLE , Behcet's disease. That's why i said , that follow these medications first , if you won't get relieved , i would advise you testing. Stay Healthy.
