Caption: Aphthous ulcer. Close-up of an aphthous ulcer (mouth ulcer) on the inside of patient's lower lip. The large whitish ulcer is surrounded by red inflamed tissue. Aphthous ulcers usually occur on the mucous membrane inside a cheek or lip. The small painful sores last up to two weeks before disappearing. The cause of aphthous ulcers is not understood, although they may be triggered by injury (by a toothbrush, for instance), and are known to sometimes contain streptococcus bacteria. Treatment is palliative, consisting mainly of soothing ointments and painkillers.
