Thanks for asking the query,

Mouth ulcers occurs due to many factors, like immunologic abnormalities, vitamin deficiencies, trauma and allergy.

Get a thorough checkup done by the Dentist.
Apply ointment cortisone acetate topically over the affected area.
Diet suplementation with vitamin B12, iron, folic acid and zinc sulphate.
Use colgate plax solution gargles after toothbrushing.
Get you teeth cleaned.
Maintain a good oral hygiene.
In severe conditions corticosteroids can be administered.

Hope this helps out.

Hi Ajeet

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Vitamin B is effective in treating mouth ulcer / apthous ulcer. Please continue same tablets and also use salt water rinsing frequently or a mouthwash like Hiora from Himalaya used can heal the ulcer.Avoid spicy foods or hot foods. Please mention since how many days you are having this apthous ulcer.

Take care.

I have been suffering from mouth ulcers from last two months. These ulcers start automatically any time day / night and become big (inside mouth any part, not on single place). I am not sure the reason about this, i taken some medicine suggested by my doctor, i visited to 5 doctor, ENT Specialist too, but nothing works, neither mouth paint, cleanothrush, Tees, etc. I am worried why these coming, even nowadays there is no problem of stool etc, i left smoking two months back and also not taking any other things (Alcohol, Tobacco etc). Please suggest what i need to do or to whom i need to consult, is it Oral CA, but i also found on internet Oral CA Ulcer come on side not every where.
