They are small erosions in the lining of the oral cavity or  the tongue. They tend to be recurrent. They usually tend to disappear in about 7-10 days but cause a lot of discomfort.The main causes include trauma, allergy to toothpaste ,vitamin b complex and folic acid deficiency,familial, poor oral hygiene. 
These can produce severe pain especially while eating and drinking, and bad odor from mouth. sometimes excessive salivation is seen and occasionally fever .These may also be seen in women during the menstrual cycle.

Recurrent minor ulcers amount for over 80% of aphthae cases. These are usually between 1-10 mm in diameter and heal spontaneously within 7-10 days. Recurrent major ulcers can be in excess of 10mm in diameter and can take months to heal. The homeopathic medicine is very effective in these cases both during the acute phase-when the ulcer is present , and also very much beneficial to root out the complaint and its recurrence .
Although the process in idiopathic recurrent aphthous ulcers is usually self-limiting, in some individuals, the ulcer activity can be almost continuous. Similar ulcers can be noted in the genital region. Beh├žet syndrome, systemic lupus erythematosus, and inflammatory bowel disease are systemic diseases associated with oral recurrent aphthous ulcers.
The ulcers usually start during the teens or twenties, but may begin in childhood or in middle age. An attack usually lasts 5-10 days, with individual ulcers slowly enlarging over several days.
Vitamin supplement is the treatment that is given in the modern system. Some cases does respond to them but recurrence can always be best treated by homeopathic remedies , the similimum in the case

Reducing mental stress, and good oral hygiene can reduce these problems but a homeopathic medicine can do wonders in these cases.
