These are called mouth ulcers. It specially happens when our whole body system gets heated .Sometimes deficiency of Vitamin C also could lead to Mouth ulcers.In such conditions,plenty of water should be taken with simple plain foods by avoiding too hot and spicy items.In market various types of mouth ulcer gels are available.We can use those also.

This looks like the canker sores my mom used to get all the time in her mouth. They can be very painful but they go away on their own in roughly 7-10 days. Doctors actually don't know why people get them but, apparently, they are likely hereditary. Does anyone in your family get them too? They are also linked to food allergies, ill-fitting dentures, etc. My mom used to do several things to try to make them less painful ... because she often had difficulty eating and sometimes even speaking because her mouth would be so sore. Certain foods are recognized for causing or aggravating the sores. Examples are chocolate, nuts, spicy foods, strawberries, citrus fruits, juices, tomatoes. Coffee and sugar are also of concern. My mom was a huge coffee drinker and she liked her sweets so some of these things were difficult for her to avoid. Also, if she even ate one chocolate that had nuts in it, she was sure to get a canker sore. You can try eliminating some of these things from your diet or get an allergy test to find out if you have trouble with anything specific. Also, you should take a good multi-vitamin daily to make sure you aren't deficient in folic acid, B12, etc. When you already have the sores, you can do a few things to make them less painful until they go away. Simple baking soda -- you can put some directly on the sore several times a day or make a paste with a bit of water and apply. Might hurt a little but, ultimately, it can give relief. My mother preferred to gargle salt water several times per day -- put about two tablespoons of salt in a glass of warm water. There are also commercial mouth rinses but she found plain old salt water helped her most. You should search "canker sore treatments" or something similar and you will find a lot of information. Good luck and feel better

I am very sorry to hear that. I hope they can do something for you even though they say there is nothing they can do. Maybe some gum or mouthwash can help numb it a little.

Oh wow that has to be irritating and frustrating. If your doctor has not recommendations, I probably would seek a specialist such as an ENT, EAR, Nose and Throat specialist. I would say maybe it is due to dehydration as my mouth can get a bit way too dry when I don't drink enough water. But I wonder if that is the same for you and if so the doctor would have recommended this. So my suggestion would be to seek a professional/specialist as my thoughts is that if there is nothing you can do then it will continue to get worse.

I am sorry, I do not believe your doctor. Please take a second opinion about your problem. Most probably, it is related with some stomach problems...are you occasionally constipated? Include fruits and vegetables in your diet and a lots of water will help you. Above all, a second opinion is the best possible course of action. Best of luck.

I had blisters which used to form frequently.My physician at that time prescribed multivitamin tablets which were to be used for a month or two with a gap of a month.This seems to have worked because they do not come as frequently as earlier.When the blisters are severe i use a mouth wash containing potassium nitrate with sodium fluoride and it helps to a great extent.
