It could be: It is likely an apthous ulcer which should go away in 7-10 days. If it persists see a dentist for further evaluation. An over the counter topical anesthetic such as zlactin-b or orabase can help with the pain.

Take extra care of your teeth and gums..Try to reduce stress..And eat healthy balanced diet..These are some ways t help prevent in future.
