Recurrent oral ulcers usually are due to vitamin deficiency and most of the times secondary to gastrointestinal disturbances

Add a good amount of fiber in her diet and a tablet of folic acid once daily for four to seek weeks

If she has no GI symptoms this should work , if she has any GI symptom we will need to treat her accordingly

Hope this helps
Wishing your wife a healthy life ahead
