    You may have a mild case of oral Lichen Planus. It's an auto-immune response. Have you started any medications, herbals, supplements, toothpaste, oral rinse, been sick, and or had stress? Usually it will go away once the source is resolved.

    hello doctor i have had an ulcer and kept thinking that it was cancer andmy thinking put me into too much anxiety and all these white lines come when i had the ulcer but the ulcer is getting better but its not completely healed it been 20 days for that ulcer in my lips not completely healed but it did put me in stress anxiety and so and to be honest these while lines appear after the ulcer showed up i do not take any medications,

    Hopefully, your autoimmune response will go away on its own. If you are having discomfort or pain, have your dentist consider oral corticosteroid like Triamcinolone in Dental Paste.

    Your body doesn't develop cancer very easily unless you have the genes and risk factors. An expert once mentioned that your body fights off cancer developing cells everyday. If you have the genes and risk factors such as tobacco use, those daily cancer cells can potentially overwhelm the body. This is a daily struggle. It is best to eliminate those risk factors.

    It is unusual for ulcer to not heal after 21 days. It is best to visit your dentist to evaluate the reasons. Lichen planus does not cause a fever but it may be correlated due to altered immune response. Take care of what's ailing you and it should go away.

    It looks like an aphthous ulceration (stomatitis). It normally goes away in 7-10 days. Do you have any immune compromised conditions such as diabetes, acquired immune deficiencies, congenital, etc.? Ask you doctor or dentist to prescribe you Triamcinolone (Kenalog) in Dental Paste and apply with a Q-tip to the sore about 3 times a day.

    The ulceration looks like it is getting better. It usually goes away in 7 to 10 days.

    It looks like it is healing. You must be under a lot of stress and your body's immune response is stressed as well. Get Triamcinolone in dental paste from your doctor/dentist.

    It is not cancer. If you are a smoker or use tobacco, quit ASAP.

    second doctor said this ulcer is healed but it can some times take more time to heal depend on the cause of the ulcer if its heat from stomach it heals within 2 weeks if its a bite or food cut it can take more then month to heal

    i have got another ulcer in my mouth cheek which i showed him and showed him the white lines he said its new ulcer looks normal and the white lines could be fungles i showed him the old picture and i told him that how was big it is and he said if this was cancer it would never become smaller or even healed a bit it would go worse then that and he told me to buy these medicine flagyl 250 its for the stomach + mycost is a gel for fungles

    now i am really confused sir what would u advice me to do im having very dry lips and cheek pain little not very painfull in my top lips and bottom lips where ulcer is but not very painful and burning sensation on my tongue pain in my gum i eat normal no diarrhea sometime fever that comes and go

    You may have to go to a larger city with more resources. The medication I mentioned numerous times may not be available in smaller communities.

    The lesion is your body's autoimmune response. Antibiotic will not cure it because it is not bacteria related. You shouldn't take antibiotics on your own because bacteria will get resistant to it when you need it the most. You need to have a doctor's prescription. Please, if you want my advice, then follow it.
