Painful huh?! Most often, mouth ulcers are caused by acidic foods or drinks. Also, if you have a small scratch (perhaps from eating or whatever) one could develop due to bacteria, or even from a viral infection. Try a mouthwash such as Listerine or even Peroxide on a Q-tip. If that doesn't help, you could call your dentist's office. Either way, most ulcers (if not serious) take 7-10 days to heal... Avoid lots of salt until then.

A mouth ulcer is also called a canker sore. There is no research to suggest that they are caused by spicy food, but eating spicy food while you have a canker sore can make it hurt more. Doctors don't know exactly what causes canker sores. They may be hereditary, but doctors have not figured out exactly how people inherit the tendency to get them. Researchers think they may be an overreaction to the Streptococcus bacteria, because the bacteria are often found in the canker sore. People with canker sores often have small injuries from dental injections and toothbrushes in the lining of the mouth. Allergies also may be associated with an increased risk for canker sores.

If the ulcers or sores appear at the corner or corners of mouth, it may be a form of yeast infection. We all have yeast in our system.  Under certain conditions the bacteria that balance out the yeast fall short and a yeast build up may cause a breech in the skin around mouth, especially if your mouth stays moist there.
