Hello from JustAnswer.

Is this a visible sore? If so, could you attach a picture of the sore?

How long has this been bothering you?

I am sorry. I thought you said that you can take a photo.

There are several common conditions that can cause a chronic sore on the roof of the mouth.

A sore can develop because of chronic acid reflux that is letting acidic contents get into the mouth. Most people with acid reflux will also have heartburn, but there are some people with acid reflux that do not have heartburn and only present with symptoms from acid irritation of the throat, mouth, or lungs.

Mouth sores can also occur because of chronic inflammatory conditions, and this would be more likely if there are other unexplained systemic symptoms.

The other major concern when there is a chronic sore in the mouth would be a cancer of the mouth. Cancer of the roof of the mouth is not as common as other types of cancer, but can occur. Any time there is a sore that persists, there should be consideration of whether it is cancer.

It is reasonable to try some home interventions, particularly for acid reflux. It may help to take a medicine to suppress stomach acid, such as ranitidine or omeprazole. It also may help to swish antacids in the mouth several times per day, including at bed time. If these interventions promote healing of the sore, then it obviously is not cancer. But if the sore persist, then it would be important to see your doctor for further evaluation.

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.

Can this be hiv problem or oral sex bacteria or fungal
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Can you recommend a tablet to treat this which i can buy over the counter
Doctor: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

It is very unusual for any infection to cause a sore that persists for 4 months. It will either resolve spontaneously or will get so bad that people will not sit at home and tolerate it. For example, the mouth sores of an acute HIV infection will typically resolve over 2-4 weeks. The infections that may persist indefinitely until treated, such as oral yeast, will usually get intolerable long before 4 months have elapsed.

The medicines that I recommended above are over the counter in most countries.

I m fully vegetarian person can this be related to it or b12 low problems
Doctor: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Vitamin B12, folic acid, or iron deficiencies are associated with mouth sores, but these are more often recurrent short-term sores, rather than chronic sores. It certainly would be OK to take a multivitamin and iron supplements.

I think i have mouth bacteria problem

Doctor: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Mouth bacteria are not a common cause of a sore on the roof of the mouth that persists for months, but if there is evidence that it is due to bacteria, then your doctor can prescribe antibiotics.

Can you give me antibiotics i buy over the counter

Doctor: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Oral antibiotics are not over the counter in most countries.
