Why ulcers there: Depends on where it exactly is and what it looks like. Mouth ulcers can be a matter of simple using an rx Peridex (chlorhexidine gluconate) soak, or it can be more serious even up to a cancer. This needs to be evaluated by a dentist for what it is and what is the best to do.

Find the cause first: If you have several mouth ulcers at once you may want to see a dentist to determine if there is a cause that can be determined such as a food, drug, or toothpaste allergy. If no cause is evident then the ulcers are most likely caused by an autoimmune response to stress or specific foods and can be treated with topical steroids. These will also get better on their own within a week or two.
