Brief Answer: Most probably Apthous ulcer. Hydration, vitamin su Detailed Answer: Hello, I have gone through your query and understand your concern. Some common causes for these pimple like lesion in uvula are infection or allergy. In some instances, this may be due to stress ulcer also called apthous ulcer. She may also be deficient of nutrients and also of low immunity after that illness. For mouth ulcers close to uvula, you can follow these treatment methods: Maintain oral hygiene and avoid spicy or acidic foods like colas, juices etc at this time. Eat a soft, bland diet to reduce the pain and drink plenty of fluids. Avoid salty foods, citrus fruits and foods that need lot of chewing. Drink plenty of fluids to avoid any dehydration. She can take vitamin supplements after consulting your doctor as it will help in improving the symptoms. For soothing effects she can also use over the counter lozenges. If the symptoms persist or if she have fever or throat pain or enlarged tosills, then get an evaluation done from your doctor. Hope this helps. Please write back for further queries. Wishing you good health.
