Give it time: The ulcers will heal on their own. It is better to not do anything and let nature heal the lesions.

See dentist: You can rinse with 8 oz. water and 1 tsp salt - as warm as you like - 3-5 times / day to get some relief. Your dentist might prescribe "magic mouthwash" which may also offer some relief. See the dentist. good luck.

See your dentist: For evaluation, x-ray and dental treatment. But be careful in the future, clove oil is very strong and can cause burns inside your mouth if used incorrectly.
