Typically the treatment for these lesions are reactive and pallative consisting of topical treatments including 5% 5-aminosalicylic acid cream and other agents as well as laser therapy.

Call your dentist: This sounds miserable and the clove oil aggravated it. Unfortunately there isn't much that can help resolve a canker sore quicker. Call your dentist to see if it needs to be looked at.

White spot like canker sore under tongue. Painful to talk, swallow, eat. Has been sore for 3 days now. What is it? Treatment?

Oral Discomfort: It appears as though you may be suffering from dehydration related to your "intestinal issues". This may stress your body enough that you develop canker sores or oral lesions that resemble them. However, "sores" under the tongue should be examined thoroughly by a dentist, oral surgeon or oral pathologist to eliminate the possibility of a potentially more serious condition.

Any magic, special treatments for "aphthous ulcer" (canker sore)?

Any magic, special treatments for "aphthous ulcer" (canker sore)?

No Magic Cure: Researchers are not sure of the cause of aphthous ulcers. There is no known preventive measure. Treatment is palliative with low level laser therapy able to relieve pain and accelerate healing with about 5 minutes of treatment. Biolase waterlase iplus or md works well in my practice, of the lasers I have tried.

What to do if I am always getting canker sore in my mouth and tongue though I'm taking multivitamins. How can I cure this and prevent it next time?

What to do if I am always getting canker sore in my mouth and tongue though I'm taking multivitamins. How can I cure this and prevent it next time?

Multivitamins: Not all multivitamins are equal. You should see a "nutrition response testing" professional to determine exactly what you need. Most vitamins in the store are synthetics and your body does not recognize them or use them. Vitamins from whole food/plant sources work well. Also think about breathing through your NOSE ONLY. You may be drying out the inside of your mouth if you breathe through it.
