How might Sutton disease 2 be treated?

Treatment may not be necessary for minor canker sores which tend to clear on their own over the course of a week or two. Large, persistent or unusually painful sores may require medical care.[1] The goals of treatment are to decrease pain, speed healing and avoid recurrence. While no one therapy meets all of these goals, many do offer some benefit.[2] Treatment may include mouth rinses, topical ointments or systemic corticosteroids.[1]

More detailed information about treatment options can be accessed through the Treatment and Medication sections of Medscape Reference and through the American Academy of Oral Medicine.
