Which Doctor would I see in reference to white sores on tounge?
How can I treat mouth sores?
Hi, Pat. 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.
But they keep coming back
That is exactly what canker sores do. They come and go. Very annoying. Not much you can do.
I have precancerous lesions on my tounge. They are being monitored by a Head and Neck Surgeon.
