the feature you are presenting goes in favor of fungal infection like candidiasis, so penicillin will not work, you need to take a course of antifungal drugs like topical candid mouth paint...maintain good oral hygiene and saline gargling wil help you..consult a dentist or ENT surgeon for needful..
