Brief Answer:
Probably cancer sores, please try to attach again the photos.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Your symptoms seem to be related to cancer sore.

I didn't receive the attached photos, so please attach them again to help me confirm the diagnosis.

I recommend using anti inflammatory medication such as Ibuprofen 400 mg three times a day in case of pain.

I recommend using mouth rinse which contains steroid ingredients to reduce inflammation.

I also suggest using topical creams containing benzocaine such as Anbesol. You should apply the paste three or four times a day for relief.

Meanwhile, you should also take a vitamin supplement that contains folate, vitamin B-6, vitamin B-12 and zinc.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
