Hi,
Understand your health concerns.
Stomatitis is caused due to deficiency of Vitamin B2 (Riboflvin), which is one among B-Complex group of vitamins.
To overcome the deficiency, you need to take B-Complex capsules once a day for a month. Keep your oral hygiene healthy by using Chlorhexidine mouth wash twice daily.
You should be better in a weeks time. Wish you good health.
