Sally, it all depends on the cause of the ulcers. If they’re infective, the appropriate antibiotic would be the best option, but they might be aphthous ulcers and then antibiotics won’t work. An antiseptic mouthwash like Andolex C® is always a good idea, but it might burn a bit. I wrote something on aphthous ulcers a while ago and if you’re interested in a copy, you can mail me at CyberDoc@mweb.co.za. Good luck.
