From antibiotics?: While possible, it's probably not the antibiotics that are causing the ulcers. If you were prescribed antibiotics by a health care provider, you need to discuss this with him\her right away. If you took the antibiotics on your own, then see a dentist or physician based upon your other symptoms.

Canker Sores: are the most common oral lesions. Individual ulcers typically last 1-2 weeks. The aphthous ulcers are usually self-limiting. Try to keep adequate oral hygiene as possible. If concerned see your dentist after 10 days or visit today for laser immediate amelioration.
