Brief Answer:
Vitamin B supplementation is likely to provide relief.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

Most often oral sores occur due to deficiency of B vitamins. Taking Vitamin B complex tablet/capsule once or twice daily for 5-7 days usually resolves the problem.

For mucositis, application of topical anesthetic agents like lignocaine jelly provides relief.
