Thanks for your query.

You have a sore raised white spot at the junction of upper gum and lip.

From your description, it seems to be an aphthous ulcer that can occur due to smoking, stress, acidity, and indigestion.

Hydrogen peroxide can worsen your symptoms; do not use it again.

It might help to use boro-glycerol cream which can be applied four times a day. Vitamin supplement containing b-complex and folic acid also are effective in fastening the recovery of such ulcers. Do take them once a day.

The symptoms should resolve in a week. You may consider consulting your doctor if your symptom worsen or do not improve in a week.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further queries, I am available to address them. Please indicate your acceptance if you do not have any further query.
