Ulcers in the mouth occur due to various reasons. The main reasons however which are most common is due to stress or any vitamin deficiency in the body. Going by the history I am inclined to think that they are due to vitamin deficiencies. But before i suggest any remedy we need to pin point the cause. Please get her checked by a good dentist as after taking a look at the ulcer one can tell what type of an ulcer it is and what the cause would be. The remedy would then be suggested accordingly.

Ask her to avoid taking very hot beverages and spicy food cause may be this may be the cause of mucosal thinning and ask her to take one tablet of vitamin c 500 mg chew able tablet for 20 days as it will help increase repairing and one becosule capsule every night for 15 days. Her problem will resolve and even ask her to get her endoscopy of stomach to rule out any occurrence of peptic ulcer.
