Thanks for posting the query,

Canker sores occurs due to physical or chemical trauma .
Visit to a Pedodontist and get clinical evaluation done , look for any sharp tooth causing irritation .

Apply dologel oral ointment topically over the affected area.
Take vitamin suplements.
Maintain a good oral hygiene , clean the mouth with antiseptic solution using handkerchief or cotton this will prevent infection and promote healing .

Hope this helps out.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Firstly get her looked at by Dentist to look for sharp tooth which can cause recurrent canker sores. Also Vitamin B deficieny can also cause this problem. Recurrent canker sources could point to a serious condition called Febrile neutropenia where an essential component of blood cells is very less. Better to get her blood counts done immediately. She needs to be shown to a Paediatrician in this regard for proper management as proper diagnosis and management is necessary.
