There are many different causes for mouth sores and hiv is only one of them. There are even less dramatic causes like stress that can cause the formation of lesions. Seek medical care to evaluate

Ulcer in mouth

Keep in mind that any non healing ulcer in the mouth should be examined and possibly biopsied to rule out a malignancy (like cancer) particularly if you smoke/drink alcohol.

I got mouth ulcers. What's the best treatment for this?

Find the cause first

Canker_sore
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.

What is the the treatment for mouth ulcers other than salt?

Coating

Oral_ulceration
Assuming canker sores, not chemo related. Avoid irritants like acid foods, coffee, alcohol. Coat w/ Maalox, or mix liquid Benadryl(antihistamine) with Orabase or Oragel. Apply several times daily, as needed. Still takes 7-14 days to heal

Dr. Kini B. Tran answered:

What is a good treatment for mouth ulcers that come up for no reason?

Listerine Mouth Rins

Head-mouth
1 st option is you can use the Listerine mouthrinse 2x per day for 30 seconds. The purple or green listerine works great. If you rinse with this, it'll keep the ulcer from developing and actually go away. 2nd option is go see your dentist who has a laser equipment which can treat the ulcers and canker sores also when they first develop. See your dentist.
