Hi
Welcome to the forum!
If the ulcers are persisting for 5-6 years ideally they cannot be canker sores. The ulcers could be due to herpes simplex virus, leukoplakia (precancerous condition), oral lichen planus, or oral thrush. Since they have been there for so long, I am sure you must have tried a number of treatments. Probably biopsy of the lesion would be the best course of action to know what they are due to. You can also take tests for herpes simplex and for thrush.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
