Aphthous Ulcers (Canker Sores) are relatively common, and can cause recurrent ulcerations in the mouth.

They typically occur on the inside of the lip and cheek and underside of the tongue, last for 1-2 weeks and then completely heal up at that site. They are recurrent and in some patients can have more severe presentations with large ulcers, or frequently appearing multiple ulcers. Dr. Nita Chainani-Wu has extensive experience in the diagnosis and management of canker sores or aphthous ulcers. Treatment of oral symptoms may be with topical and/or systemic medications .
