It sounds like swollen tonsils. It generally takes one to a few weeks to go away. The following are some things you can try to relieve the symptoms.

  • getting lots of rest
  • drinking fluids, such as water or diluted juice, at room temperature
  • drinking warm tea with honey or other warm liquids, such as clear chicken soup or broth
  • using a warm saltwater gargle three to five times every day
  • humidifying the air with a humidifier or boiling pots of water
  • using lozenges, ice pops, or throat spray
  • taking over-the-counter pain medication to reduce fever and pain

Hi. Mouth sores often go away in 10 to 14 days, even if you do not do anything. The following steps can make you feel better:

  • Avoid hot beverages and foods, spicy and salty foods, and citrus.
  • Gargle with salt water or cool water.
  • Eat fruit-flavored ice pops. This is helpful if you have a mouth burn.
  • Take pain relievers like acetaminophen.
