Hi, ulcer since such a long duration need to be examined, aa per your complaint it seems to be a traumatic ulcer which is formed due to irritation from sharp tooth or such traumatic factor. Visit a dentist for proper diagnosis. Best of luck.

Hello. Yellowish latch on the tongue could have many diagnosis. Vitamin B12 deficiency causes more of ulcer formation. It is called as aphthous ulcer. Any dentist would need to check clinically and then tell you the diagnosis. For time being if it is a normal ulcer you can start with b complex tablets, have lots of water and fruits. Avoid spicy food. Please visit a dentist for confirm diagnosis. Thank you
