Hygiene and rest: I assume the mouth ulcer is so-called canker sore whick will heal in 7-10 days if it is not infected secondarily. Keeping the area clean via thorough oral hygeine is by far the most useful remedy. Avoid spicy food, rinse after each meal, and apply topical anesthetics if pain is severe. Good rest is also helpful because stress and immunity play big roles in this disease.
