Hello

Thank you for trusting HCM

Dear it may be due to upper respiratory tract infection. Some times it may seen in anemia and vitamin deficiency or it may be canker sore which is seen in stressful conditions.

It may be due to scarlet fever or stomatitis. Please take anti pyretics, antibiotics. Salt water gargling if symptoms not improved consult your doctor immediately.
