Hi,

How are you? Treatment usually is not necessary for minor sores because they tend to clear on their own in a week or two. Aside from mouth rinses, over-the-counter and prescription pastes can help relieve pain and speed healing if applied to individual lesions as soon as they appear. Zinc lozenges, large doses of vitamin C and B complex, probiotics such as acidophilus, and lysine supplements may also help.  But if it persists, it would be best to have this evaluated further for proper management.

Take care and do keep us posted.
