Monday morning I noticed an irritating pain in the left side of my mouth. After inspecting it in the mirror, I noticed a long, white sore between my lip & gums ([url]http://i.imgur.com/WyDz1Ce.jpg[/url]). It feels similar to a canker sore, but I have never seen one this large.

Two days after that appeared, a rash of smaller canker sores began to break out under my tongue and throughout my mouth ([url]http://i.imgur.com/UtsdtsV.jpg[/url]). I've experienced minor canker sore outbreaks before, but these seems to be more stinging and they also have red circles around them.

I've tried to seek relief using benzocaine, alum powder and Peroxyl Mouth Sore Rinse, but nothing seems to be working. I'm worried this may be something more serious. Any advice on what this is/how to treat it would be greatly appreciated. I've exhausted my options.

Thanks.

An ulcer that does not heal within 2 weeks should be seen by a dentist since this is the most common 1st sign of oral cancer. Fortunately, most spots in the mouth heal fairly quickly.

Get to your dentist as soon as you can, but use anbesol if you are in pain and cut all acidic and "sharp" ( like chips) foods out of your diet for the time being.

But seriously, get to a dentist.
