Too broad a question: Dr. Sampson gave you an excellent answer. The list of possible causes is almost endless. The cause of the problem would determine the treatment or how best to attain relief. If you could be more specific, we could give you a better answer to your question.

Depends: The best medicine or treatment depends on the cause of the sore or ulcer. Some ulcers or sores are caused by irritation from some source, while others may be related to stress or from viruses. Treatment would differ for each of those types.
