What can be done for a sore in the mouth?

Probably little: Generally these small ulcers are painful and we do not know the cause, but they clear up in about a week. On the other hand they may be due to herpes simplex virus, syphilis can produce mouth ulcers, as can coxsackie virus. Without seeing it and having more information the best advice is that if it persists, have it seen by your primary care doctor.

Why is Mouth Sore?: How long has your mouth been sore? Do you need to see a dentist? Are your teeth the cause? Your gums? I would say eat liquids and soft foods. Avoid spicy foods.
