Canker sore: It's a canker sore, or an aphthous ulcer. I get them too, and they are annoying. The immune system itself causes them, sometimes in times of stress, sometimes in response to certain viruses, or sometimes "just 'cuz".

In the meantime, unless it gets larger or becomes painful, I wouldn't be too concerned about. ...Read more

Allowing anything out of the ordinary to linger is not advisable. Please have the lesion evaluated. ...Read more

We use anti inflammatory medications such as topical creams such as metronidazole, sulfur/sulfacetamide and oral antibiotics to reduce the inflammation. It may take several months to get the rash under control. ...Read more
