Mouth ulcers in kids can be mainly because of poor oral hygiene, due to multiple carious teeths ie. Rampant caries, commonly seen in kids. Emphasize on his twice a day brush and instruct him to rinse his mouth after every meal or any snack he takes. Kids multivitamin along with kids calcium syrup is also advisable. Thank you.

Hello, you need to visit a dentist and get it checked. For an ulcer you can apply baking soda over it, or do baking soda in water mouth rinses. This will give you relief from pain and heal the ulcer. If it still persists, you can consult a physician and get your Vitamin B levels checked. If required take supplements for it.
