Thank you for the information

The ulcers of her mouth & tongue can be due to aphthous stomatitis or canker sores.

The other causes of ulcers here are deficiency of vitamins, injury , infection , vasculitis , allergy etc.

But from her distribution it seems more likely to be aphthous ulcers.

She can take B vitamin supplements & should have a check up by her doctor.

I hope this information will help.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
