Brief Answer:
Provide picture.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to HCM.

From the description,it might be a small boil but I will need to inspect the area to arrive at a certain conclusion.

So,provide me picture if possible.

Antiseptic mouth wash can be helpful.

Take vitamin B complex and folic acid tablets with over the counter pain killers.

Small course oral antibiotic will also be helpful but before advising it, I would want to see that sore area.So please send it.

Awaiting picture.

Regards.
