In brief: Alkalinize mouth

Decrease acids that you eat or drink.
Stop coffee, tea, sodas. Drink only water. Get some antacid liquid like maalox or mylanta and use a tablespoon of it swishing and rinsing for 1 minute after each meal and before bed. Decreasing acidity in the mouth helps to heal and prevent these ulcers.

In brief: Ulcer

Not much! the duration is short and the therapy should just be with topical anesthetics.
Major aphthous ulcers are different and require medical attention and possible admission with IV administration.
