  • It must be some ulcer which are called as apthous ulcer or canker sore. These are self limiting and go away themselves. You have to make sure that you donot irritate them further. If they are very painful you can apply some topical anesthetic gel and take some supplements like vitamin c and B complex. Try to maintain good oral hygiene as there should not be any secondary infection. if there is secondary infection then infection has to be treated.
