    It's possibly not an std, it could be a fungal infection or could be an ulcer due to vitamin deficiency, you can try using Candid Mouth Paint, Zytee gel (apply on the lesion) , Listerine mouth wash gargles. Take lots of fruits, vegetables (vitamin rich diet) , if it doesn't come down, you can see an ENT doctor for further advice
