Sore on the inside of mouth, tongue, cheeks
This can be a cancer sore, a herpes lesion, a cut from a sharp cracker or a burn such as eating a very hot food like pizza pie that burns the roof of the mouth. There are many over the counter creams or salves that are available in pharmacies for irritations in the mouth. Use something specific for the mouth and apply as directed. If it does not get better in a day or two, seek professional dental care. There are stronger medicines that a dentist can use as well as lasers to treat the lesion. And if it does not go way in a few days, even it stops hurting, it is imperative that a professional evaluation is performed because it could be something much more serious.
