Brief Answer:
Toothpaste can be a cause...

Detailed Answer:
Hi..
Thanks for the query...

Yes, toothpaste can be a cause of allergy but Aphthous ulcers are not always due to the allergic reaction...

Yes, it is treatable so my suggestion is to apply a numbing gel containing Lignocaine over it...
Do warm saline gargles twice to thrice daily...
Take Vitamin B complex supplement for a week...
Do cool compresses over it...

Please write back for more queries...

Regards.
