Canker Sores?: Canker sores (ulcers in your mouth) can be easily treated over the counter with things like kankaid that provide a pain relieving covering for the sore that aids healing. Ulcers outside of your mouth (cold sores caused by the herpes virus) can be treated otc with drugs like abreva. Herpes can also be treated with prescription drugs to relieve symptoms, so consult your doctor.

Untreated: These go away on teir own in 7-10 days. They are self limiting & cause no other problems, except being uncomfortable & painful.
