Brief Answer:

Vitamin deficiency

Detailed Answer:


I have gone through the details. It can be due to vitamin b12 deficiency. You can apply Aloclair or Dento gel to the affected areas twice a day for faster healing and pain relief.

You can take tab. becosules once daily for 30 days. You can continue betadine gargle or listerine mouthwash thrice a day after food.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
