welcome to HCM forum,
If you have recurrent ulceration then it is not common. This is called recurrent stomatitis.
there are many causes. Treatment should be according to cause. First change your dietary habit, take food regularly, avoid spicy and hot food. Mostly this complain is due to constipation or gas trouble. If you have, then take high fiber diet, plenty of liquids.
It maybe due to vitamin deficiency so to correct it.
take care.
