How To Cure Throat Ulcer ?

I currently have a throat ulcer - or so i believe - feels like a canker sore in my throat, adjacent to the uvula- for about 2 weeks. A fre clinic DR said it was due to rhinitis - and that time will heal the sore - is this correct - or should i go see my GP for further evaluation

Hello

an ulcer for 2 weeks can be sinister and definitely needs to be evaluated to rule out an infection or a growth. please dont delay and meet your doctor as soon as possible.
For the meantime you can start gargling with warm salt water 2-3 times a day.
Thanks
