Brief Answer:
As below

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Yes, this is an oral ulcer.
Do not worry, it gets over soon.
However, it indicates deficiency of vitamin B Complex.
Please take B folcin tablet once daily for one month to avoid frequent such ulcers.
Apply Orajel ( glycerine ) ointment on the ulcer five to six times a day.
Avoid eating oily, spicy food.
It should be better soon.
All the best.
Please feel free to discuss further.

I recently went on holiday to Turkey and had a bout of insomnia while I was there. I called for a doctor from the hotel reception and they called one for me. He came and gave me a diazepam injection . It worked fine but the next moment I had suspicions he used a dirty needle as they are common practice in Turkey. The following week, I felt fatigue , dizziness, headaches and feeling of unbalance. Not to mention a mouth ulcer or 2. Is it possible that this doctor used an unsafe needle and injected me with a virus or disease of some sort? If this is unlikely, what could it be?
