Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 21year old boy. I suffer a lot from canker sore (mouth ulcer). I have tried all home remedies and over the counter medicines without much success. Kindly help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • The exact cause of most of the canker sores (mouth ulcers) is unknown.
  • Stress is thought to be a major cause.

You may try the following treatment:

  • Take tablet B complex or Neurobion forte (vitamin B12) one tablet daily for 7 days.
  • Take tablet Folvite 5mg once daily for 7 days. 
  • Take capsule Darolac one capsule daily two times a day for 7 days.
  • Orasore ointment for local application on the mouth ulcer.
  • All medications to be taken after breakfast or meal.
  • Drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water a day.
  • Have good sleep for 7 hours in the night. 
  • Take less stress, do meditation and yoga.
