Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM

I have gone through your query and can understand your concern..

The common causes of mouth ulcer could be deficiency of iron and vitamin B12, stress, acid reflux, excess intake of sour foods, physical injury with some hard food or dentures, dry mouth, hormonal imbalances or constipation etc.

I would suggest you to go for certain investigations like Hemoglobin %, serum Vitamin B12 and folic acid levels, blood sugar if you have problem of repeated mouth ulcer.

You can gargle with soda bicarb solution or gargle with numbing mouthwash containing Lignocaine.

Zytee gel will also be helpful to get relief from burning ulcer. One or two drops of gel should be applied directly over the ulcer.

Take multvitamin supplements like vitamin b complex with folic acid once daily for 7 days.

Suck ice and do cold water rinses for symptomatic relief.

Avoid spicy and hot foods and drink plenty of water.

Maintain a good oral hygiene with antiseptic mouthwash.

Hope this helps.
