Thanks Dr Shofique for tagging me. It is a case of recurrent minor Aphthous stomatitis. As exact cause is not known recurrence is difficult to prevent . It is a T - cell mediated immune response triggered by a variety of factor like - Nutritional deficiencies - local trauma - stress - Hormonal influences - Allergies - Genetic predisposition In many patients a family history is known. Association with SLE and IBD is known . Treatment- Mainstay of treatment is topical analgesics, anaesthetics and antiinflammatories. Benzydamine mouth washes and spray are effective. Silver nitrate cauterisation can be tried in resistant cases. Topical metrogyl gel is also used Oral folic acid and other zinc conaining B- complex vitamins are helpful. Oral ornidazole 500 mg B.D for 3 days help in treating secondary anaerobic infections
