When should I see a doctor?
Although over-the-counter medications are commonly available for mouth sores, you will need to see a doctor when:
- It lasts longer than two weeks
- You have an immune deficiency (HIV) or you are a cancer patient on treatment
- There are lesions or rashes in the other parts of the body
- You have weight loss
- The sore is abnormally large or is enlarging rapidly
- You have a severe allergic reaction to your medication
