Hello thanx for the quiery.since lot of drugs he has taken also has history of allergy to drugs he has to stop which is not required right now under his treating physician guidance.since three weeks he is suffering he has to have a check up for his gastrointestinal system,because it could be associated with systemic causes. So you may need complete blood tests and a consultation with ge specialist. For reducing his symptoms he should take topical anesthetic, topical antiseptics and a course of micro nutrients. Also plz consult a oral medicine specialist..hope it helps tc..
