If ulcer is healing type, then you can apply gels for aphthous ulcer. If the same ulcer is persisting for 4 months, better consult an oncologist or oral & maxillofacial surgeon & get a biopsy done to rule out recurrence of cancer.
Ulceration is the side effect post radiation therapy. Start taking multi-vitamins, get a consultation done from your oncologist.
