Aphthous Ulcer

This problem of mine started from last 3-4yrs. I am getting recurrent aphthous ulcer every now and then. This appears spontaneous and resolve after a week or two. Like previously i used to get once in 5months approx, but now it has increased in its frequency..i get it once in every 2months or so. Currently am having a ulcer in my upper gingival area. To mention my general conditions are all ok. Plz help me. How to get rid of this? Is there any particular treatment for this? Other than symptomatic treatment.
