May be lichens: planus or hairy leukoplakia associated with a viral infection. Or you may have recurrent aphthous ulcers that require some Nystatin since many ulcers are related to Candida (yeast) infection. Or herpes ulcers requiring some acyclovir. Please see your physician or healthcare professional for proper diagnosis and treatment. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.
