In your case: In your case obviously not. Important that you be seen by the appropriate specialist, in your case an Ear/Nose/Throat specialist, for differential diagnosis. Once the cause of your "ulcer" has been determined the appropriate treatment can be administered. Please make an immediate appointment.
