You can apply Metrogyl DG gel

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for asking on Ask A Doctor platform

You can apply Metrogyl DG gel for oral Ulcer. It contains antiseptic agent.
It is safe for oral application. Give some multivitamin drop for better relief and maintain good hydration by giving plenty of fluids.
Most of the time oral Ulcer improves within three to four days. If it is getting worse please consult your pediatrician.

I hope this helps.
Please let me know if you have any more questions.
