Thank you for the picture.
In most cases, these kind of sores are due to canker sores or aphthous ulcers. They can arise due to a number of conditions which can include poor oral hygiene, a recent infection in the throat such as in your case, viral infections or even nutritional deficiencies. In your case these do look like canker sores and should heal on their own over the course of the next week, however if they last for more than three weeks or you develop additional symptoms like bleeding, severe pain in the sores, problems in eating or drinking etc then you would have to see your doctor to rule out bacterial infections or even dental infections for which oral antibiotics would have to be used.
Now In your case this is likely to be canker sores, which as i said will heal within a week or 10 days, but you can help speed up teh process by using teh following home measures,
- using a rinse of saltwater and baking soda
- using over-the-counter benzocaine (topical anesthetic) products
- applying ice to canker sores
- using mouth rinse that contains a steroid to reduce pain and swelling
- Use nutritional supplements which contain zinc, vitamin B12 as nutritional deficiencies can be a cause as well
So i think this is nothing to be worried about at the moment, simply use the above measures and if they last for more than three weeks or you develop any of the other symptoms including extension of the ulcers to the lips then see your doctor.
Do you have any more questions?
