Mr. Mehta, you are lucky to have got so many good suggestions . All worth trying . Mouth ulcers are called aphthous Stomatitis . Appears due to immune abnormality, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, allergies, A variety of reasons are there . Basically vitamin B deficiency mainly Riboflavin [B2] and folic acid , B12. This could be due to dietary insufficiency , or inadequate absorption from the guts [intestines].

If it is due to deficiency , take Vitamin supplementation . If due to inadequate absorption or lack of endogenous synthesis the vitamin therapy will eb a waste .

Then you have to go to the root cause by changing the diet styles and diet ingredients to improve the vitamin absorption and synthesis in the bod [Intestines]. It is quite a difficult task for you to convince a 13 year old boy. This is the age they resent taking diet and are attracted to all sort of Junk FSS [Fat Sugar Salted ]foods.

Slowly start giving Curd the first feed in the morning as Dr. Korada suggested . Make it acceptable to the child with salt and sugar and some natural flavouring ingredients like Jeera powder and saffron - costly worth it [केसर , குங்குமப்பூ].

Curd has bacteria, such as lactobacillus which is also known as
Prebiotic bacteria which are friendly and good ones for the system. It is now known that certain strains have the capability to synthesize water‐soluble vitamins such as those included in the B‐group (folates, riboflavin and vitamin B12 amongst others) . Exactly what our friends in Circle have advised to be given . The presence of this bacteria in the guts helps in the absorption of and synthesis of B-vitamins , particularly the ones which prevent stomatitis . Include Cabbage , Cauliflower steamed , which will increase the probiotic activity in the guts . This is the base towards making the system synthesise and absorb vitamins , particularly B. [Tablets or capsules are available in the Pharmacy - like Vizylac , Nor B Cap etc .]

Sir. great and use ful details .. Salutations. more  
Mouth ulcers are viral infection. Folic acid supplement works wonderfully to replace the lost cells in the mouth. Drinking lot of water will reduce viral load. However, ghee, homemade butter can ease the pain to certain extent. more  
Mulethi powder or Licorice powder works really well - you can mix turmeric and ghee to apply on the ulcer too ! more  
Please do not use any Toothpaste for brushing - instead, use mango leaves, neem leaves, neem sticks, etc.; Disturbance in food tract (especially large intestine) is the main trigger for mouth ulcers (at this age); eat leafy vegetables 2 or 3 days in a week (Palak, Methi, Mooly, Drum-stick leaves, Tandalia, etc. as may be available); Do not consume Curd, instead take 1 or 2 glass buttermilk, if necessary; Eat citrus fruits ONLY (orange, grapes, mosambi). preferably for break-fast, eat salad with lunch & dinner (eat this first 80 to 100 grams and then rice/rotti + subji). When ulcer is present, just before going to bed at night eat one table spoon of black til fully chewed slowly (if possible add butter with it) and do not wash the mouth after that. Needless to say to avoid cola drinks, junk foods, etc. Maintain oral hygiene by gargling with ordinary water only many times a day, if required. Best Wishes.... more
