Expert:  Dr. S. Attili replied 1 year ago.

Ok. Please see your doctor and get betamethasone 2mg soluble tablets and get her to apply it on the canker sore 3-4 times a day and let it dissolve gradually. The sore should heal up within a few days. In addition, in order to prevent recurrence, I would recommend taking multivitamin caps (any locally available brand) twice daily for 3 months.

Hope this helps. Do keep me posted & get back if you have any further questions or feel that I have missed out anything. I will be here to provide ongoing advice as necessary. Best wishes
